Hello, hello everybody, I’m finally back to the online world after a few hot days getting prepared for my evaluation (and I have to say that I did really good (: ). I’ll start by sharing my impressions of another great exhibition I saw not long time ago.
The show is held in Design Huis in Eindhoven and it is called GLASS. It goes on till the 8th of March. So, if South of Netherlands is within your reach, I suggest you to come and see it yourself!
Works from artists and designers from around Europe are on display. There are functional objects as well as installations and pieces of art. I have always thought glass is one of the most hard-to-manipulate materials and + it’s not easy to make something from glass that doesn’t look kitch. So, I give all my respect to people who make beautiful things from glass!
Bublicious adjustable table lamps by Dutch designer Chris Kabel. I like the idea, but … still some of his older stuff I find much more interesting (the lace parasol etc.)
The soooo beautiful candle holders by French designer Arik Levy.
Rainbows by Siem van der Marel. It’s a joy for eyes!
“Elaculatum ” by Anthon Beeke. (the ex head of communication department at the Design Academy Eindhoven + a big name in Dutch graphic design).
And some astonishing sea motifs. (sorry, I missed out some of the authors…)
Marieke van Diepen: a milk bottle serie. (At the moment I’m a fan of the “message in a bottle” theme!)
Bethlehem by De Oude Horn studio. (looks a bit like an explosion!)
Mushrooms? Right… welcome in Holland.
