From 22 March to 29 June 2014 Paleis Het Loo is presenting the work of Dutch designers in five historic interiors of the palace in an exhibition entitled ‘Royal Showpieces, a royal encounter with Dutch design’. For the first time in the history of Paleis Het Loo these traditional interiors will be given a different look. Using museum pieces from the depots along with clothing, tableware and art objects, the well-known exhibition curator Nicole Uniquole is presenting a lively dialogue between the royal taste of the past and contemporary Dutch design.
Included in the exhibition is The Princess Chair, one of the ‘characters’ designed for Happy Ever After.
We’ve added the Little Lake Platter and a new vase to our collection Mateus meets Tord Boontje that radiates passion and a lust for life!
The collection launched last August for Mateus’s 20th anniversary with the Lake Platter and Gift Box.
The development of Computer Aided Design, new materials and digital production technologies has revolutionised the tools and opportunities available to designers
The Language of Process showcases a range of innovative products produced using cutting edge approaches to design and manufacture, and includes the Garland to demonstrate the technique of photo etching.
The exhibition includes thirty pieces by some of the world’s leading creative designers, from established figures to up-and-coming talents, and is on at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Special Collections Gallery until 20 December 2013.
For Kvadrat’s new book Interwoven, Tord worked with writer Hettie Judah and shares insights into his working methods for his two collections with the Danish textile design company.
The beautiful book with wonderfully tactile cover was designed by Graphic Thought Facility, who designed the Tord Boontje monograph, and also includes contributions from Denise Hagströmer, Jane Withers, Olafur Eliasson, Peter Saville, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Sevil Peach, and Zoë Ryan.
In a completely new direction for his work, Tord has created patterns through magnetism.
Based on his 1991 graduation project, an investigation into interference pigments, he has revisited this exploration culminating in new work: Magnetic Fields. Resin coated surfaces with an eerie depth and beautiful embedded 3-dimensional patterns of electro magnetic movement allude to a dark sci-fi atmosphere.
The installation includes wall panels and furniture.
London Design Festival runs from 14th – 22nd September.
We’re also part of Shoreditch Design Triangle with a late event Tuesday 17th until 8pm.
See you there!
