The Design Week Phenomenon •

Dutch Design Week occupies a special place among the many design weeks that are organized worldwide. The design events may seem similar from the outside, but they definitely distinguish themselves by type and size. Geography, industry, history, and marketing budget make a world of difference. Last month, I was at the London Design Festival, which seems to be in competition with Milan Design Week. At the Festival, I was reading an interview by Marcus Fairs with Patrizia Moroso, CEO of the Italian furniture brand of the same name. Patrizia said: “All the most important people of the beautiful past of Milan are very old or dead. I don’t see energy now; the city is like a closed box.” Last year, The New York Times wrote: “APOLOGIES to Milan and Tokyo. Regrets to Stockholm and Paris. Forgive me, Eindhoven, Berlin, Barcelona and, most particularly, New York. But London is the design capital of the world.” It is possible, but there is also a successful promotional campaign underway, because both statements were published this year before the festival in London had even begun. Personally, I thought the London Design Festival was sparkling and highly profiled, with few distractions. Except the event that was organized by the London Design Festival organization itself, that is; at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the exhibition God is in the Detail took place, in which worldrenowned designers such as Tom Dixon, Ross Lovegrove and Mark Newson chose an existing museum piece, above which they placed a magnifying glass to point out the beauty of the piece to the visitor. It was an exhibit that left visitors feeling disappointed (yes, the Victoria and Albert Museum is beautiful, but that is not why I was there). An empty shell, but the designers involved contribute to the image that is created before the event starts. The conceptualization worked, but the fact remains that Milan Design Week is still a much larger event than the London Design Festival. In addition to the cities’ differences in size (London has 8.3 million inhabitants, Milan has 1.3 million, and Eindhoven has 219,000), the cities are completely different in nature; Milan is situated in an area that makes Italy the second manufacturing economy of Europe (after Germany), London is the largest creative hub in Europe, but GB does not excel as a manufacturing economy, and Eindhoven is a provincial town with a high concentration of technical industries and a world-famous Design Academy. Every city has its own qualities, and that variety makes it worthwhile to visit various fairs throughout the year. In my opinion, the quality of Dutch Design Week is that it is supported by independent, often young, designers and not by big brands and sponsors. It is a feast for scouts looking for new work; many designers located in Eindhoven just throw open their studio doors for 10 days, providing a glimpse behind the scenes. Eindhoven is like a diamond in the rough, London is a polished diamond, and Milan is the jeweller. Eindhoven takes its place on The New York Times list and we should be proud of that. In spite of all the marketing campaigns, Dutch Design Week has not yet become a lucrative fair for designers and brands; let’s hope that changes this year, because the sector could use a little elbowroom. This is our first edition of Connecting the Dots created for a Dutch event. Our aim was to shed light on Eindhoven without losing sight of the diversity of Dutch Design. In doing so, we interviewed Sue-an van der Zijpp, curator of the Groninger Museum, and discussed the museum’s unique method of acquiring design. Photographer Boudewijn Bollmann and journalist Annemiek van Grondel portrayed eight Eindhoven designers. Joana Meroz, lecturer at the Design Cultures MA at the VU Amsterdam, stretched the limits of what can be called Dutch Design. Wendy Plomp, founder of Dutch Invertuals, wrote a column in which she describes the qualities of Eindhoven beautifully. And much more. Happy reading, but I would especially like to wish the public much inspiration and the companies good business. David Heldt Editor-in-Chief

Rogier van der Heide Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

His passion? “Design for a changing world.” Since 2010, Rogier van der Heide (43) is responsible for product, industrial and communication design and design innovation at Philips Lighting as Chief Design Officer and Vice President. Van der Heide: “The world is changing, and I design to show people and have them experience the positive effects of this.” His background as a light designer comes in handy in making this happen. “Philips now realises how the company can create more value with light,” he says. “I think that in general manufacturers have a bigger influence on society. Designers and manufacturers work more closely together creating light experiences in architecture. I try to invent an expression for a brand, an exhibition or a building. And to keep it simple: one colour, one gesture, one operation.” His design for the interior of the Rijksmuseum illustrates this: only one shade of white light, but so carefully designed that everything in the museum is being shown at its best. Or the lighting design for the Beijing Olympic Stadium: a red bowl covered with a yellow ‘web’ of light: China in a beautiful nutshell. The Van der Heide’s light tells a story with one simple gesture. “Light does more than emphasize architectural aesthetics; it has its own expression in architecture. So I add an extra to architecture. Something that is easy to read. Everyone understands it.” Building bridges At Philips, he and his team want to

the dots #8

influence the “well-being of people, their wonder and imagination, their health”, as he puts it. “Design is the bridge between technology and people. Technology is just an enabler. To love an innovation, one should make a well-thought design for the technical product. Philips has trans­formed from being the best manufacturer of lamps to an innovative company that creates applications for technology. We look at what motivates people, why should they want to use a product, what is ‘the question behind the question’? Our work is ‘people-centric’ as we call it in the studio, and ‘designed around you’. Easy to use, loveable and recyclable.” What concerns him ultimately is the light effect, not the aesthetics of the luminaire. Van der Heide: “We pay much attention to how the luminaire makes light: what is the beam width, which is the texture, the shadowing, is the edge of the beam soft or sharp? How many opportunities can we ‘build’ for architects to be in the game? And we do this by investing more than ever in innovation and design – in addition to research and development in new materials – like the possibilities of OLED and other new lighting sources. Our aim is to make ‘light experience’ inspiring and per­sonal. In the 17th century, Dutch painters Vermeer and Rembrandt were the ‘Masters of Light’. It is my ambition to work with all my colleagues to make Philips the ‘Master of Light’ of the 21st century.”

Nacho Carbonell

Nacho Carbonell Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

Is it design? Art? Theatre? The magical world of Nacho Carbonell (32) never ceases to amaze. His experiments with all kinds of techniques and sometimesunusual materials (from metal, gravel, rubber and concrete to fibres, wine bottle cullets and comb hair) lead to almost inimitable interior and product design. After his graduation from Cardenal Herrera C.E.U., Carbonell, originally from Valencia, decided to study at Design Academy Eindhoven, where he was honoured cum laude in 2007. He won several awards, such as Designer of the Future at Design Miami, and shows in museums and design and art fairs all over the world. After residing in an Eindhoven church as an anti-squatter (‘An opportunity I could not resist: 1000m2 space with Jesus on the wall, blessing me’), he and his team of about ten people now work at Section C, a formal industrial space taken over by designers. That he still lives in Eindhoven – with wife/ PR-lady Paloma and newborn son Noë – is due to the Design Academy, he says. “We learned there to do something special, whatever sacrifice you have to make. I sacrificed family, friends and amazing weather. The city architecture may not be that appealing, but the atmosphere and the energy you get from the people who work in design, is amazing. In the beginning, I didn’t understand a word. I jumped from mistake to mistake, until I finally got it. It was all about exploring my limits and limitations.”


Diving Carbonell makes such imaginative things, with well-thought-out concepts behind them, that one cannot help but wonder what it would feel like to dive into his brain. “I want to tell who I am, where I am from. I love dreaming. Ideas pop up from my subconscious and memories, come together and compose a personal story. I remember snorkelling, and being in my grandparents’ garden in Valencia. We lived very close to the elements. I just had to open the door to see the sea.” Personalities According to the designer, materials are like people, all with a different personality. “Stained steel you can see as a man with a tough, cold, showing-off kind of character. He will not easily adapt, unless you know the tricks to have him do so. Or glass: tempting and dangerous. I broke hundreds of wine bottles and glued the cullets on something that became a sparkling piece of work. And though the material is hard, the result looks cuddly. Even though it was made out of broken glass, still everybody wanted to touch it. Like a super glamorous woman at a party who is so out of your league that you know you shouldn’t make a pass at her, but still you enter the danger zone.” Find his presentation at page 54, presentation nr. 48

Design at the Groninger Museum Interview with Sue-an van der Zijpp, curator at the Groninger Museum Text: Billy Nolan

To understand the Groninger Museum’s strong recent engagement with the vanguard of contemporary design, we must go back to the late 1980s. That was when Gasunie, the state-owned enterprise responsible for vast gasfields in the most northerly Dutch province of Groningen, made a substantial donation to the museum to facilitate its relocation to a new, purpose-built venue. Those funds enabled the then director, Frans Haks, to oversee the creation of a brand-new museum building prominently positioned right in front of the city’s railway terminal. And he entrusted the job to a friend of his, the Italian designer and architect Alessandro Mendini, with additional work by Philippe Starck, Coop Himmelb(l)au and Michele de Lucchi on various wings and interiors. Haks was a charismatic director who had been in charge for almost two decades. Needless to say, in that time he left an indelible mark on the museum’s identity, most notably on engaging with various creative disciplines and bringing them together under one roof. That was already evident in his choice for the multi-talented Mendini – architect, designer, editor and theorist all rolled into one. Indeed, all of those involved in the building’s design exemplified a multidisciplinary

the dots #8

approach long before it came into vogue. And Haks it was who ensured that the seminal Proust Chair became part of the museum collection. When Sue-an van der Zijpp joined the museum in 1997, Haks had already departed. “Back then, we more often hosted readymade exhibitions that had been put together by other museums.” “The first big exhibition I curated, together with my colleague Mark Wilson here, was also devoted to a single individual. It was a retrospective of work by Marc Newson in 2004, which later travelled to the Design Museum in London. I think this was somehow formative for the way we deal with design in the museum today.” “We also had an exhibition called Mutant Materials, curated by Paola Antonelli at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. But over the years, we’ve shifted more towards co-producing exhibitions with other institutions, or we try to have our shows travel to venues abroad. That’s a huge advantage from a practical point of view when mounting an exhibition on, say, Chinese art, where transport swallows so much of the funding. Splitting the expense among various hosting museums makes sense.” When it comes to staging its own design exhibitions, Van der Zijpp points out that the Groninger

Museum caters first and foremost to a very general public. It does that by staging traditional exhibitions with broad appeal on subjects such as Russian landscape painting or German expressionism. “They attract the crowds. When it comes to areas like design and fashion, therefore, we don’t have to worry too much about visitor numbers. Instead, we can afford to showcase work by individuals who are not quite mainstream but operating more on the experimental fringes. So although most visitors come for the big blockbuster shows, we serve them up a helping of contemporary cutting-edge design while they’re here, even if it’s not what drew them in the first place.” Although the building strongly reflects the postmodernist era of the 1980s and ’90s in which it was conceived and built, its 2010 upgrading was seized on as a chance to go beyond the main­ tenance work necessitated by almost two decades of heavy use. New interior spaces by Studio Job, Jaime Hayon and Maarten Baas infuse the building with a fresh spirit. Van der Zijpp: “Our collaboration with Studio Job and Jaime Hayon in particular are illustrative of where we are today when it comes to collaborating with artist-designers. We favour an approach


that allows us to forge a lasting relationship over an extended period with figures we think are worth following. It’s a relationship based not only on presenting their work but also, and this is vital, collecting it. What’s more, we can loan the acquisitions to institutions all over the world or put together travelling exhibitions.” Collaboration of this sort really started over a decade ago, says Van der Zijpp, with exhibitions on the work of fashion photographer Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and fashion designers Viktor & Rolf. “Over the years we’ve refined our way of working into a form of stipend,” she adds. “It’s a bit like an investment or savings scheme. What we do is sponsor an artist or designer for a period of at least two years, say, two years in which they can produce new work that will eventually culminate in an exhibition here. And if successful a tour abroad, as is the case with an exhibition on fashion designer Iris van Herpen that is now in Calais and will go to Sweden before travelling to the US. Items produced during that period and made with the intention of including it in the exhibition are then added to the collection of the Groninger Museum. Last year, to mention just one example, we were able to add to the col­ lection a number of pieces by Iris van Herpen, one of the most striking young fashion designers around today.”

The solo show devoted to her work in 2012 was a follow-up to her inclusion in a group show entitled Material World held a year previously, featuring work by eight artists, designers and fashion designers united by their preference for surprising and radical materials and their deployment of novel tech­ nologies. Many of the pieces in that show were produced specially for the occasion. From the line-up for Material World – comprised of Pieke Bergmans, Nacho Carbonell, Iris van Herpen, Maartje Korstanje, Joris Laarman, Alon Levin, Karen Sargsyan and Marga Weimans – it is clear that the Groninger Museum is interested in designers who are artistically inclined. Van der Zijpp fully agrees: “Figures like Bergmans, Carbonell and Laarman view design as a vehicle to express their soul, just as artists do.” The fact that these designers produce one-off works rather than pieces that can be reproduced serially has no bearing on the museum’s choices. In fact, for the Groninger Museum the one-offs are actually preferable in terms of amassing an idiosyncratic collection. It will even opt for something custommade from designers who do produce in ‘bulk’. “Objects of the kind we showed in Material World don’t lend themselves to production in numbers,” explains Van der Zijpp. “It’s simply not in the nature of the work. Or take the monumental bronze pieces by Studio Job from his Craft series. The material alone and the way it is treated means the objects couldn’t be anything other than unique pieces. This was a conscious choice of the artist, because he intended to celebrate the idea of craft in a monumental way.” In choosing which designers to exhibit, the Groninger Museum prefers designers whose work, as Van der Zijpp puts it, “best reflects the meandering definitions of what constitutes design today. In that sense we treat the work of designers as art and focus on its symbolic relevance. Our emphasis is not on the technical process that went into ‘the making of’ a piece. What we show is the finished result.”

museum or centre seemed on the cards, until the economic downturn killed off the idea. A lost opportunity? Nothing worth crying about, believes Van der Zijpp. “When you think about it, the museum is such a nineteenth-century concept. Why set one up today? In Germany they’ve had a long tradition of Kunstgewerbemuseen, museums of applied art, but we never did. Instead, we have departments of applied art embedded within the bigger museums, but not as separate entities.” “Something along the lines of a centre of expertise would be more in tune with the times now,” says Van der Zijpp. “That said, while the existence of such a body might benefit the design sector, the lack of it doesn’t seem to hinder the health of our design culture. And don’t forget that design has always had a weak profile within university faculties in this country too. It’s only very recently that chairs devoted to design culture have seen the light of day.” Even though no national institute for design has been set up of day, design is very much part of the programming within many larger and smaller museums and platforms around the Netherlands, and each of them does it in its own way. That diversity is enriching. Design cannot complain about a lack of attention.” October 2013 sees the opening of a solo exhibition of work by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, yet another designer who enjoys a long relationship with the Groninger Museum. After purchasing two of his pieces in 2009, the museum invited him to design its new information centre in 2010, and has since acquired other work by him. And now his first major solo exhibition is set to open. Hayon can count himself among the lucky few with whom the Groninger Museum works a lot.

Does that reflect wider tendencies in the field of design? “There is definitely a move today away from schools or movements towards a more indi­ vidual and personal approach,” says Van der Zijpp. “The time was ripe for this shift. The designers we are interested in are not primarily concerned with the practicality or functionality of an object. Whether something can be produced efficiently or not is not the benchmark of success. For them design is also about exploiting the freedom to tell a story, and the designer is a storyteller whose output has a more poetic quality. And the interesting thing is that design can say something about the meaning of the object and the various and complex relations people have with things in a way ‘normal’ art cannot.” Such is the esteem in which design is held in the Netherlands that the creation of a national design

Floris Wubben Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

A head full of quixotic ideas and still as down-to-earth as can be. Meet Floris Wubben (30), inventing interventions on and through nature. Working on the intersection of practical and artistic, his experiments with furniture and nature have resulted in organic designs that defy reality. Upside Down Lounge, jointly produced with the artist Bauke Fokkema, is a chair grown from nature, for which willow tree branches were forced to grow into four legs. Stripped is a floor lamp made out one branch, with the bark pealed from it, rotating around the standing parts. With his graduation project Living Table – a table growing out of bamboo knotted with rattan that will return to nature after three years – Wubben won the Eco Design Award 2007. “I was being typecast because of that award”, he says. “People saw me as an eco designer, but I have little interest in functionality, ecology or other trends. I am an independent experimental designer. My main theme is that there are no boundaries. I want to explore everything, letting my own creativity and senses run wild.” Functional ar t Through constant improvisation with natural materials, Wubben gives them new functions and perspectives. His designs are modern abstract pieces of sculpture. Functional art, you might call it. Wubben: “Nature and furniture co-operate; they need each other to

the dots #8

create the final design. Without too much human intervention, a part of nature is transformed into a sculpture or utensil.” For Dutch Design Week, he adapted his ‘PlayDoh-like’ product installation, Pressed. The pots and vases are made out of epoxy clay and natural clay by using an extrusion method. They are now also available in a much larger size. At DDW, you can buy one at his studio and in the Yksi store. Dare to do After studying interior, product and furniture design in Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands, Wubben first worked in Den Bosch. Now, he has moved his studio to Section C in Eindhoven. “The city of Eindhoven supports designers”, he explains. “And here I see so many like-minded people who inspire me. Kindred spirits who are ambitious and hard working.” One could have guessed the motto of this broad-minded warrior: “Do not give up, but persevere. Dare to do. And dare to believe in yourself.” Find his presentations at pages 51, 54 and 55, presentations nr. 25, 48 and 51

Thijs van Agt and Kevin Caboor Ridder & Clown

Ridder & Clown Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

Their heroes? Alf and Willy Wonka, naturally. Youth and childhood memories are the main inspirations for Thijs van Agt (29) and Kevin Caboor (28), a.k.a. Ridder & Clown (in proper English: Knight and Clown). They met at the Man & Activity department at Design Academy Eindhoven and realised they were kindred spirits. ‘What would we be like if we were grown up?’ was one of the first questions posed when they were on the verge of starting their own design company. Their products and materials – pure like a child, usually made of wood and glass – give solutions to this essential question. They are a reflection of their way of working and of putting an idea into something concrete. Ridder & Clown make childhood memories tangible. Storytelling This is apparent in handmade products like Memento: a cabinet (two hidden drawers included) with solid and transparent glass boxes on top of it, for keeping special objects of sentimental value and cherishing the memories they provoke. Or Bedtime Stories: an inter­ active storytelling backdrop that doubles as a child’s bed. Three coloured panels serve as book storage on one side, while the user can sit and read against the other side. Other sections of the frame make an improvised puppet theatre or, with the help of a blanket, create a tent, magic carpet or backdrop for a selfinvented fairy tale.


Imagination “Our work is by definition not directly meant for children, but for adults”, the design duo clarifies. “Sure, there always is a big nod to childhood, or a detail that refers to children. Take for example Blokjewagen (Block Car): it seems at first a toy cart, but it is really more of a storage cabinet, with a nice twist on the wooden toys of yesterday. As an adult, you want to label everything immedi­ ately: a cabinet is a cabinet. But as a child, you see a closet perhaps very differently, for example as a trolley or a castle for toys. In his fantasy world, a child experiences things around him in its own unique way. A bench can also be a box. A closet can be a cart or a stool, why not? How our products are judged depends on the imagination and interpretation of the user.” Find their presentation at page 51, presentation nr. 25

Birdcage for songbird competition, for sale at Nieuwkoop’s Dierenspeciaalzaken in the Bijlmer

Vogel Parade, (Bird Parade) by Ko Aarts & Guido Vlottes, 1997, in the Bijlmer

Joana Ozorio de Almeida Meroz: Which object from the Bijlmer did you research?

The Surinamese birdcage, which is predominantly used by members of the Surinamese communities living in the Bijlmer. It is used for songbird competitions, in which two birds are placed next to each other for fifteen minutes and the winner is the one that sings the most during this period. This tradition was brought here by immigrants from Suriname, a former colony of the Netherlands that became independent in 1975. While the birdcage has been overlooked by official design histories in the Netherlands, it and the birds are actually very much valued by the Surinamese community – so much so that there are clear references to the ‘sport’ in public spaces in the Bijlmer (such as street names and public art). Therefore, what initially seemed to be a simple, perhaps uninteresting material object found within the borders of the Netherlands, provided interesting oppor­tunities for investigating inter­ cultural relations from a design cultures perspective. By interviewing different owners of birdcages and a pet-shop owner, exploring the Bijlmer area, and reviewing the literature on this ‘sport’, we tried to reconstruct how these cages are made, who uses them, and which meanings are attached to them.

Jetske de Groot, Rosa te Velde, Marit Turk:


Kim ter Harmsel, Lisa Whittle, Anneclaire van Veelen:

We researched artificial flower pieces, which we first saw in the windowsill of De Nieuwe Stad church centre, next to the services timetable. The building itself is currently owned by four Christian churches, but many immigrant churches (twelve, at the time of writing) hold their ceremonies there as well. The position of the flowers next to the entrance at first seemed like a purposely-placed invitation; how­ever, upon closer examination it turned out that they were placed almost everywhere throughout the building (see pictures next page). We chose to investigate these flower pieces because, on the one hand, they do not conform to stereotypes of Dutch Design, and, on the other hand, because they are not a typical religious item (we usually think of them as part of the decoration in the homes of elderly ladies, along with lace curtains). In order to discover the role of artificial flowers in nonCalvinist faiths, we observed the ceremonies of two non-Calvinist religious groups affiliated with countries outside of the Netherlands and interviewed the churchgoers. How is your object an example of Dutch Design?


JdG, RtV, MT: We were not interested in investi­gating whether the object is Dutch Design or not, but rather exploring the limits of Dutch Design as we

know it now. If we think about Dutch Design, we tend to think of chairs, lamps, and vases by legendary designers like Rietveld. Whereas logically any object found within the borders of the Netherlands could potentially be named Dutch Design, this appears not to be the case for most critics, historians and lovers of design. By inves­tigating an object, such as the Surinamese birdcage, that might be considered neither very Dutch nor Design in the first place, it becomes clear that what we do call ‘Dutch Design’ is often related to stereotypes of Dutchness. One of the most persistant ideas in accounts of Dutch Design is that it is an outcome of the modernist tradition of design, and that the latter is born of Calvinism, in which moral values like soberness find expression in sober forms. However, the idea that all objects found in this country express certain Calvinist values is, of course, very limited, and should be contested. Moreover, by looking at the birdcage, we also realised that objects used for leisure activities are not very often considered to be Design. By writing about this object, by giving it attention, we tried to offer an alternative view of what Dutch Design can include. Often, Dutch Design is viewed as a set of characteristics relating to the aesthetics or the concept of an object (sober, geometrical, abstract, rational). Obviously, artificial flower pieces do not fit these criteria. Interestingly, however, what we noticed during our research is that immigrant respondents did consider the artificial flowers to be typically Dutch. They associated the flowers with the Dutch notion of gezelligheid (‘cosiness’) – a quality they did not associate with the religious or cultural traditions of their home countries. So actually, from the perspective of immigrant interviewees, the flower pieces were examples of Dutchness, and could be seen as an indistinct, but poignant characteristic of Dutch Design. KtH, LW, AvV:

Based on your research, what are relevant lines for future investigation into Dutch Design?


JdG, RtV, MT: It would be interesting to broaden the idea of Dutchness and study the material cultures – by which we mean common and ordinary things, instead of decorative expensive objects – of just anyone living within the borders of the Netherlands. Another research topic could be the influence of the former Dutch colonies on present material culture in the Netherlands.

What we found is that all inter­viewees, whether so-called ‘autochthons’ or immigrants, defined Dutch Design according to their cultural perspectives; as mentioned above, interviewees’ perceptions of the flower pieces were heavily in­fluenced by their cultural framework. This process reflects the mechanism of social con­struction according to which phenomena such as Dutch Design come into being. So it could be interesting to investigate, for example, what Dutch Design is from the perspective of immigrants in the Netherlands.

KtH, LW, AvV:

Does this mean anything can be Dutch Design?


JdG, RtV, MT: The definition of what Dutch Design is depends on what is considered to be Dutch, and what is considered to be Design. These are very complex, political issues that need to be redefined from time to time, and depend on the angle of research. It seems to be unproductive to consider these issues as having definite, permanent definitions. Nevertheless, people do have an idea of what Dutch Design is supposed to be; therefore it is much more interesting to see how this came into existence and is constructed, rather than maintaining this stereotype. KtH, LW, AvV: Looking at the findings of our research, Dutch Design as a cultural phenomenon can be defined in two ways: in terms of the perspective of those who consider themselves to be Dutch, and in terms of the perspective of those who do not see themselves as belonging to that category. In any case, what Dutch Design is not, is a predefined set of characteristics. Therefore, its boundaries cannot be defined.

Heetman | Patijn Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

Heetman | Patijn want to humanize and ‘humourize’. This requires some explanation. Hans Heetman (33) and Jaap Patijn (36) found each other as working buddies during their studies at Design Academy Eindhoven. They experimented with different departments, graduated, and teamed up about one and a half years ago. Aim and claim: interior design with a twist. Their work has associative elements that evoke recognition; magic details that fit their style and put a smile on your face. “If you take that step, you are at risk of designing gimmicks”, they acknowledge. “If you are only in it to design a joke, you fail. The design must be derived from a good idea and stand on its own. But it can also surprise and bring a smile.”

Shy desk lamp If an idea has an immediate wow factor, Heetman and Patijn know they are on the right track: “From there you plan and refine. Ultimately, it must have that distinctive and striking je ne sais quoi.” An example: the design of Lumi originated from a sketch created by folding a piece of paper and later a plastic sheet, which is easy to deform by heating it, the duo explains. “A cross arose with a number of folds. In this, you could detect human traits. Facing downwards, the lamp looks away shyly.” A Dutch label has offered to bring Lumi into production. At DDW, you can check out a prototype in the YKSI store, along with the Johnny. Find their presentation at page 60, presentation nr. 90

Life’s a joke The best advice they never received? “We love a joke. And we think it is important that you remain true to yourself. So our motto could be: Life is a joke. It should be fun. Do what you want!” The newborn design duo has four notable projects to its name: Cosy (bulb on tripod), Lumi (‘folded’ green desk lamp), Johnny (tables with brightly col­ oured, round tops, three bent legs, knee connected by a triangle), and Tony (a strolling lamp with a white lampshade). Some have strikingly coloured metal cords and others have friendly, almost human legs, including knees.

Christoph Brach and Daniera ter Haar Raw Color

Raw Color Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

Life is all about colour and identity. Daniera ter Haar (31) and Christoph Brach (34) are Raw Color. Textures and textiles are recurring themes in their work. In their studio, in Het Klokgebouw at Strijp S in Eindhoven, they are doing research into materials and colours in graphic design and photography. And they are becoming more and more intrigued by moving images. The couple was formed out of love for design and for each other, after having met at Design Academy Eindhoven. They graduated in 2007 and founded Raw Color that same year. Looking for natural dyes, the duo experimented with vegetables and vegetable juices; they decided to start a long-term study of natural colour pigments, new compositions and colour tones. The results are used to create all kind of textiles and installations. Tinctorial Textiles is a new step in the research into natural pigment and experimenting with plant dyes. Together with Ecological Textiles, they developed UV resistant wool textiles that can be dyed on an industrial scale. Lucky Raw Color work for various clients. For instance, in an assignment of Merkx & Girod they designed the graphical language for a new ANWB store, and a short film was made for The Nederlands Fotomuseum as part of the large WIT exhibition. “We have been fortunate to rarely have to acquire and promote our work,


other than in exhibitions and publications”, Brach says. “But sometimes we push our luck. The past year we asked the national TextielMuseum for advice about weaving, concerning a project for tea towels and blankets. They responded positively and asked us later to take care of their visual identity.” News clock For Raw Color, this assignment is a dream come true. In it, all their interests come together: textiles, colour, graphic design, including the website, and photographic elements such as images for the flyers. Brach: “If we had not sought contact with them, we would not have been on their radar in the search for new designers for their identity. Guts and luck came together. So I am calling for action rather than acquisition!” During DDW Raw Color will be part of the Dutch Invertuals group exhibition. They offer a different perspective on the value of time, presenting an ingenious clock with different coloured lenses. The clock is not only related to time, but also connects to information, in the form of newsfeeds, and has an inter­ active element for us visitors. Prepare to be surprised.

Interview with Yu-Lan van Alphen, Programme Manager Culture and Cohesion at DOEN Foundation Text: Jeanne Tan

What is the DOEN Foundation? The DOEN Foundation is a fund. We believe that a green, socially-inclusive and creative society is possible, because the world is full of committed entrepreneurs eager to develop sustainable, cultural and socially-engaged initiatives; people who aren’t afraid to take risks while inspiring others. With our funds we can support these innovators and help put their pioneering ideas into practice. DOEN is supported by contributions from the three Dutch charity lotteries: the Nationale Poscode Loterij, the VriendenLoterij and the BankGiro Loterij.

the Social Design program. With its Social Design program the DOEN Foundation supports initiatives that contribute to creating new perspectives on social issues. The focus is on sustainability, aiming for a better balance between economy, society and environment and highlighting the following themes: Better Less and Well-Being. With the Social Design program, DOEN supports an average of 45 initiatives every year, within a total annual budget of EUR 1,500,000. One of the projects you are currently financing is called Social Design for Wicked Problems.

What does DOEN do for social designers? There is a growing interest from designers and artists in strengthening their connection with society. Not only from a critical perspective but also an interest in making an impact and giving social meaning to their artistic talents. An important part of the creative process is the research phase that maps all aspects of a project. In this phase, the project is still open to unexpected developments, often without a clear end result in sight. It is precisely this artistic research that’s needed to gen­erate new insights. But often, it is difficult to apply for financing when there is no concrete product or result. For these reasons, DOEN wanted to help facilitate the work of artists and designers by initiating

Social Design for Wicked Problems (SDFWP) is a public research project about Social Design. Today, we are facing more complex problems of a new kind. Problems that are persistent, interconnected and involve behavioural change. Problems that existing rational solutions and strategies cannot handle. Consider, for example, issues such as obesity, population shrinkage or school dropouts. SDFWP connects designers with problem owners to address pressing current issues in today’s society. SDFWP is important for DOEN because it provides understanding into the social design practice – to help both designers and clients – and contributes to further development of the social role of designers.

involved in the problem than initially thought. Understanding and formulating the problem are equally as important as – or even a prerequisite for – finding a good solution. What’s integral is to have openness for exploring different paths.

How will the project take form? In the coming weeks, three design teams will each tackle one problem: obesity; juvenile mis­behaviour in neighbourhoods; and our (lack of) financial awareness. Since the teams will consist of both designers and problem owners, developing a common language will be vital for a good collaboration. Progress will be shared and discussed at public meetings and on the blog. The second meeting, at which the teams will present their findings, will take place during Dutch Design Week. The last meeting, planned for January 2014, will unveil the final design proposals to the public. What is the benefit of involving designers with social issues? Designers have an ability to look at existing situations in different ways, often with an inter­ disciplinary approach. This allows them to look at an issue from different perspectives, which leads to uncovering aspects that might have otherwise been ignored. It could be that a problem likely has a different cause or that more stake­holders are

Speaking of finance, the crisis and budget cuts by the government have greatly impacted the creative industries in the Netherlands. Does DOEN have a role in financially stimulating designers and ar tists in these tough times? As a private independent fund, DOEN makes its own agenda. Therefore, DOEN cannot take on the responsibilities of the government. That would not really offer a structural solution. What we can do is to support pioneering initiatives that show the added value of art and design for society and the well-being of people; initiatives that offer alternative models and systems. In this way, support for and interest in art and design can be increased, hopefully ensuring a translation into financial opportunities. We support these initiatives with our programs: Social Design and the Social Role of Culture. One of your most renowned initiatives is the DOEN | Materiaalprijs. Can you tell us about this?



Bottles Collection, Klaas Kuiken Nominated for the DOEN | Materiaalprijs 2010

The DOEN | Materiaalprijs is a joint venture between the Materiaalfonds and DOEN. It introduces the designs of the future. We challenge artists, designers, fashion designers and architects to find new, sustainable materials and innovative techniques to apply in their work. New materials are constantly being introduced on the market. How can we apply these in order to develop sustainable and meaningful designs? The DOEN | Materiaalprijs was created to stimulate design practices to further incorporate innovation and sustainability with aesthetics and functionality into their work. How do you think last year’s winning design contributes to a more sustainable use of materials? The ‘Energy Collection’ by Marjan van Aubel brings nature, technology and design together. Through the use of light-sensitive pigments, the solar glass­ ware works as a collector. Once the glassware is stored away, the specially-designed cabinet harvests and stores the collected energy to become a battery. The technology behind this design, which was invented by Swiss professor Michael Graetzel, is based on photosynthetic processes in plants. Marjan’s design proposes to apply this knowledge to everyday objects thereby creating a different relationship between object and energy.

More information about the Social Design programme of DOEN can be found on Social Design For Wicked Problems blog: www.socialdesignforwickedproblems. The designers participating in Social Design for Wicked Problems are: Sjaak Langenberg and Rosé de Beer, MUZUS (Neele Kistemaker, Sanne Kistemaker & Aafke Kauffman), Jorge Mañes Rubio, Lino Hellings, and Waarmakers (Simon Akkaya & Maarten Heijltjes). Stadsdeel Amsterdam West and ING Insurance / Investment Management are the two problem owners. The presentation of SDFWP will take place on 24 October 2013 from 13.30 to 16.30 at the Designhuis. The DOEN | Materiaalprijs exhibition will run from 19 – 27 October 2013 in the Klokgebouw, Strijp-S. Participating designers are Marjan van Aubel, Michelle Baggerman, MKGK, Daniel Hulsbergen, Heleen Klopper, Klaas Kuiken, Lenneke Langenhuijsen, Kirstie van Noort, Ontwerplabel Vij5, and Tjeerd Veenhoven.

What are the plans for DOEN | Materiaalprijs this year? In 2013, no prize will be awarded. We felt that after four successful years, it was time to pause, to reflect on past editions and to develop plans for the future. As a moment of reflection, we will be organising an exhibition at Dutch Design Week featuring a selection of the nominees and winners of the past four years. The exhibition will be on show at the Klokgebouw at Strijp-S during Dutch Design Week. Furthermore, several of these designers are featured in BioDesign, an exhibition highlighting the cross-pollination between nature, science and creativity, which is on view until 5 January 2014 in The New Institute. The good news is that the DOEN | Materiaal­ prijs will be back in 2014! We will share details at an upcoming event at BioDesign, so stay tuned for more details on the DOEN | Materiaalprijs website and Facebook page. Lastly, what do you personally find most inspiring about the work of DOEN? DOEN supports not only art and design but also projects in the field of sustainable energy, social cohesion and sustainable/social entrepreneurship. What binds these initiatives together is that they are realized by immensely enthusiastic and dedicated people who are committed to making the world a better place. It is a privilege to be part of this movement and to contribute to help making these projects happen.

Redefining Value Wendy Plomp Founder & Curator Dutch Invertuals

Eindhoven is special. It is not a beautiful city at first glance. But if you take the trouble, you will discover that Eindhoven has a lot to offer. Like space – to grow, to discover, to build, to run a business. Therein lies the strength and beauty of Eindhoven. It still has many hidden spots where things can arise. It has ‘soil to grow in’. To an outsider it may seem dull. It’s true: on Sunday and after nine at night, the streets are quiet. But on the other hand, the people here are very open minded. In this city, you are on a mission to do the best you can. And that is exactly what we are good at. There is a strong work mentality. Eindhoven is full of contradictions that keep it in motion. It is a young city, in puberty as it were. Contradictions force us to make choices, distance ourselves from the old and make way for the new. The energy this releases is palpable in this city. A recognizable process for people in creative professions. Like a designer looking for a new optimal form or innovative concept. Open collaboration is vital. By bringing together qualities and supporting each other, you can take up new challenges, broadening your vision. We are currently occupied by the pressure put on our definition of value. Disappearing borders make way for a new identity, culture, tradition and currency. For the first time in a long time, we have to reconsider thoroughly who and what we are, start looking for value, or reformulate our definition of value. From well-organized networks of hackers that attack our digital property. Or the shifting of physical products to virtual environments. But our confidence in what we eat is also being put to the test. Horse meat was sold as beef. The result is that we are slowly becoming alienated from the things that are familiar to us, like our knowledge and expertise. To me, it feels as if we are in the middle of a gigantic revolution, the scale and effects of which we cannot yet foresee. It is what we leave behind for future generations. That is what fascinates me.

René Siebum Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

An amalgam of a remarkable designer and an outstanding craftsman. René Siebum (32) founded his eponymous studio in 2010, the same year he graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven’s Man & Well-Being department. Woodcraft is his passion. In his workspace, located at Strijp R in Eindhoven, he creates beautiful projects that merge essence and function. Call him a minimalist; he regards it as a badge of honour. “I don’t like frills and unnecessary decoration. The goal is to try to capture the essence in a design. I want to make objects that ensure interaction between a space, the product and the user.” Siebum gets much of his inspiration from Japanese architecture. “I admire the work of Shigeru Ban and Tadao Ando. Last June, I went to Tokyo and it felt like a homecoming. The culture and people… everything that lives, breathes, thinks and moves there fascinates me. Visiting the ancient Japanese warehouses was like walking through my graduation project.” Intimacy That graduation project is called Second Skin. It’s a bookcase with sophisticated technical details that folds out into a space. “The design is related to my personal memories. As a child, my favourite place used to be at my grandmother’s kitchen table. And in the pub I always look for the safest, nicest spot. In contemporary architecture, intimacy is relegated far to the background. This

bookcase brings intimacy back to the user. And it should excite the senses.” With partners, he worked on large assignments for Stedelijk Museum, Oilily and Tedx Amsterdam, but at the moment he is trying to promote his work in stores, too. His ergonomic balancing ‘yogastool’, Lanterns from wood and Washi paper, his Basics furniture series and Low Dresser can now only be purchased from the website. Ingenious wardrobe At DDW, Siebum presents a new design: a wardrobe wall, consisting of mahogany hexagon-shaped blocks (with a threaded pipe inside) that can run smoothly. A subtle, ingenious interior product mainly meant for public spaces. For ordinary consumers, some smaller variants are being produced. Siebum: “I started playing and puzzling with geometric shapes and cubes. While experimenting – triangles become hexagons – I found the solution. After that, I worked it out in 3D. Such puzzle solving is very challenging. And rewarding. Eureka’s always follow.” Find his presentation at page 57, presentation nr. 56

Mieke Meijer and Roy Letterle Studio Mieke Meijer

Studio Mieke Meijer Text: Annemiek van Grondel Photography: Boudewijn Bollmann

After graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2006, it took another three years for Studio Mieke Meijer to be born. But from day one the studio, established in a former building of Philips and run by Mieke Meijer with her work and life partner, Roy Letterle, is in full business. The studio designs and makes prototypes of mod­ular furniture, room dividers, tableware, desks and lamps, with an important focus on architecture (their industrial archaeologystudy is an ongoing project) and constructivism, and with the use of only pure materials like wood, steel and glass. The concept starts with a brain­wave. An aha-moment or ‘just’ a brilliant idea. Then the brainstorming machine works at full speed, following endless discussions and negotiations between the two partners, and finally the development and refinement of the design. Take the Balance lamp, origi­nally designed for Dutch Invertuals, a group of designers who often exhibit with a common theme. The theme of their Untouchables expo in 2011 was ‘vulnerability’. Light bulb moment! Studio Mieke Meijer created Balance, with two sticks as a starting point. The lamp, which is composed of of two moveable pieces of wood, looks fragile. But, as the designers put it: “The will to use this lamp must be stronger than the fear of disturbing the balance.” Constructive imagery Their designs are never purely functional, but allow the users their own interpre­


tation of function. Thus, they maintain an autonomous character. Meijer: “Call it constructive imagery. We do not necessarily look at aesthetics. Form stems from certain construction and design principles. It often creates a visual language, which can be aesthetical. After having seen pictures of buildings taken by photographer couple Bernd and Hilla Becher, I devised furniture with those architectural forms in mind. It’s more about giving function than designing. For what is a designer? I do not invent form; form is created by doing.” Value This year Studio Mieke Meijer is again present at DDW with the flexible collective Dutch Invertuals, under the title Revaluate. Meijer: “I interpreted ‘value’ as if the material itself has phys­ical value. I made cut-out samples of about 40 to 60 cm, serving as a kind of sheet material, and presented in a sample cabinet, playfully referring to the material and the function. The material shows itself, with neither form nor meaning. What the user must realize? Should those mate­rials and samples be carriers for something, or is it their job to show them­selves? The idea stems from the fact that in these troubled economic times expensive materials like solid wood are often whittled. So I show them as they are. Like nuggets are more valuable than money.” Find their presentation at page 53, presentation nr. 41

About Many talented, creative designers who have started their own company or label need support and assistance with the commercial side of things. In response to this, ABN AMRO, the Dutch Design Week and the Association of Dutch Designers (BNO) developed a master class for promising young designers: Driving Dutch Design. During this 9-month initiative, a whole host of companies and organisations imparted their knowledge to fifteen young designers, all of whom were given a personal coach. The coaches were senior bankers from ABN AMRO.

Presentation Besides transferring knowledge, ABN AMRO wants to give young designers a stage – literally. To this end, the bank has teamed up with Eijk & Van der Lubbe and has set up ABN AMRO hotspots in five different locations in the city of Eindhoven, where designers will be able to present themselves. A permanent platform has been designed for the central lobby of ABN AMRO’s office on Vestdijk, also in Eindhoven. This office building has recently been refurbished with the help of 36 young designers, under the curatorship of Miriam van der Lubbe. The giant, one-metre high wing nut that adorns the hotspots symbolises the joining of forces and setting things in motion, which ties in nicely with the goals of the hotspots: bringing young, talented designers into contact with other parties.

Mosa. Discussions Creative fuel for designers and architects

Renowned designers and architects in the Netherlands allow a peek into their soul during Mosa Discussions. How do designs come into being? What goes on in their creative mind? Where do they find their inspiration? In conversation with journalist and moderator Tracy Metz, two leading professionals show how their creative process works and how they think about certain topics in their field, using images, video and sound fragments that they select themselves. Mosa organises these discussions at the Mosa Architectural Ceramics Center in Amsterdam. During Mosa Discussions you will find interesting encounters that provide fresh energy for your own creativity. A limited number of places are still available for the next session on 12 December 2013. Go to for more information.
