Ventura Lambrate April 9 Wednesday What are we looking at? When do we trust what we see? Do we need an open window? A broad perspective? Or are we best served with a small hole to peek through? Which gives aim and focus. We still haven’t got a clue. In the end it’s all in the eye of the beholder. And therefore all about you. As this tabloid is all about you. Freely available on every official location and online: www.dailiesontour.com and www.facebook/dailiesontour. If, for any reason, you’d like to meet us in person and you have the balls; we’re located at the Press Desk at Via Ventura 5 MAP F 13. You never know. PS Take real good notice of our back cover.

We are heading towards a period where FETISHISM will merge the sensual with the primitive, espousing the animistic and the primal all at the same time. Humble everyday objects can attach us to a different place, another time or an alternative state of mind. Our smartphones and tablets could therefore be considered fetishes too. After all, the word ‘fetish’ harks from West Africa, therefore, a more primitive aspect of the current mania for Africa is fitting and to be expected. Coloring style brown instead of black.

We will soon enter a moment of Modern Primitivism, as forecast by Fakir Musafar. With the juxtaposition of high technology and low tribalism, the world will invent a pre-modern alternative for industrialisation and capitalism. Musafar speaks of the idea of learning through pain and body play, something modernity has forgotten. Through corporeal modification, piercing and mental elevation, he connects to practices that can be found all over the planet. It is a ritual to go into trance and encompass the spirit by connecting more with our bodies. This is where the contradiction of past and future will merge into one circular movement of both elements.

Worst: My expectations aren’t fulfilled, my work doesn’t hit the audience, as contrasted with other participants. You know, I don’t wanna go up, up, up – I just have to move on and develop, so I need an audience. Best: I get a carte blanche to compile a group, open a shop, build a workshop, bring people together, create a train of creativity on interesting premises all over the world – the freedom to create what I love the most.

Worst: The artists’ faith in me is totally gone. The designers don’t believe in me any more and jeopardize the power of being together. Best: I’m invited for dinner by ‘my’ designers as a token of their appreciation.

Worst: We’re shipwrecked, I’m a castaway, the sailors are all drowned, the ravens ate every single brownie and the ocean fades to black. Best: The Italians tell me my coffee is even better than theirs.

Worst: I forget my fuckin’ laptop charger. And guess what: it already happened. Best: My students and I take part of Ventura Lambrate.

Worst: My car gets stolen, so I can’t pick up my girlfriend from the airport! Best: Since I’ve been ill for a long time, I don’t wanna get sick again. Damn, I think I shouldn’t have drunk that Milanese tap water.

Worst: This week is no adventure. Everything goes like clockwork, even my fluffy guinea pigs do exactly what I want them to do. Best: I’m swallowed by the project. The fluffy guinea pigs conquer me. That’s my best-case scenario for sure.

The contemporary fetish movement in design and fashion previews objects that will become layered with another strength or energy – finally design will truly acquire an anima. No longer just a thing of the past, animism will become an opening to tomorrow. A belief system that enables us to find the presence of spirit in a process, feel aura in an object, and sense soul in design. An energy to adore and with which to embrace multiple sources of inspiration, to herald hybrids and mobility in a world that will therefore become more nomadic. The experience is the message, and the road ahead offers the promise of transformation. Curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano, FETISHISM will include several works from Pepe Heykoop’s Skin Collection, instinctive garments by Femke Agema, primal installations by Brynjar Sigurdarson and a new fetishistic chair by Rodrigo Almeida. Reproductions of a rare series of spiritual photographs from Ghana by David Sarfati will provide context to this ritualistic setting. More: www.trendtablet.com

Worst: Uhm… I can’t come up with anything right now. But you know what: it doesn’t matter whatever happens, I’m just super thrilled to be here! Best: I meet international, like-minded designers to collaborate with.

Worst: I don’t have enough tiles to finish my masonry oven. No, but seriously, that would be a freaking disaster. Best: Right here and now is the bestcase scenario, man! We finished everything, and that’s the best thing that happened to me, LOL.

Manufacturing ‘the perfect design’ Super interesting, yet pretty damn scary at the same time: Dutch researched-based designer Merel Bekking teamed up with the Spinoza Centre of Neuroimaging in Amsterdam to determine what you and me really prefer to look at. Surprisingly, by using an MRI scanner in a project she labelled as Brain_manufacturing.

VIA MAS SIMIANO 23 MAP L 55

In close collaboration with scientist and neuromarketeer Dr Steven Scholte, Bekking created her method based on three pillars, namely colour, material and form. The outcome: we all love objects that are red, plastic and formed in closed organic shapes. So that’s exactly what she designed. Yep, Bekking immediately admits she more or less sold her designer soul to the devil: ‘I dropped my own preferences and started creating the “perfect design”, according to scientific measurements.’ We wonder what Faust would have to say about this.

I spy with my little eye Always on the lookout, our photographers comb out Ventura Lambrate in order to put together their own daily anthology of design. Here’s yesterday’s catch in a brand new freeze frame. I spy with my little eye…

But luckily black is still good old-fashioned black if you order a coffee. In fact, they got any colour to match your appetite. In beverages and in tiles. A great stop during your visit at Ventura Lambrate. Salute!

Perky eyecatchers and some of the coolest roadburners – as we cruise the streets of Lambrate, we meet and greet design aficionados from all over the world. Fortune favors the bold, so we added just a little denim flavor to it. Thanks to Spectre Collective, The Cuckoos Nest, Goldie, Nana Judy and Rack and Ruïn, Flattery doesn’t get us anywhere – but y’all look great in Ventura Lambrate. We shot more people today.

Wearable Senses is focusing on a multidisciplinary approach: it’s about combining hard electronics with soft materials, craftsmanship with innovative technology and smart textiles, functionality with fashion, and so forth.’ Besides theme leader at TU/e, Maarten is a designer.

In his speech at the Innovation Convention in Brussels (March 2014), Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte referred to Phonebloks as a perfect example of innovation. Phonebloks by designer Dave Hakkens is a modular phone that reduces waste and is built on an open platform made for the entire world. All in all, it’s a textbook example of how to combine creativity, ambition, technology and smart usage of online media. The creator himself, who loves technology and truly believes it helps to make the world a better place, is a one of the special guests at Breakfast Talk #2 of Design Academy Eindhoven on Thursday April 10, 10:00 a.m.

‘I think Dutch Design Week is unique in the fact that it puts creativity first instead of the product. At other design fairs only the final product is shown on a pedestal or podium. In Eindhoven it’s all about the ideas, inspiration and stories. It’s the one and only real design week in the world.’ – Piet Hein Eek (designer)
