HARDCORE is a new exhibition by Core Studio, after the success of last year POPCORE exhibition they are embarking on a new journey. Where last year's exhibition was about a playful and naive answer to our times, this year's trend vision bring us much more down to earth.

The HARDCORE exhibition revolves around elemental materialities, materials that create a world which is more lasting. Exploring a counter digital movement from a design perspective,

objects that are physically heavy and digitally light. Leaning towards a form language and atmosphere that seems to come from a previous age evokes a feeling of reliability. HARDCORE explores ancient materiality combined with new technical possibilities emerging as objects.

HARDCORE provides trend insights on the current design scene and what drives designers from a social context. The social context is something that infiltrates on many levels and therefore is important information for brands and businesses to take note of.

The exhibition forms a stepping stone and platform for young designers to showcase their work and get in contact with new clients.

Hardcore is a platform for young designer where they express themselves with material, form and context. The designs are a translation of the trendvision and cater a clear explanation and trend insight for brands and businesses

Complementary to the exhibition, Core Studio offers a magazine containing an overview of the exhibited work. Accompanied by a detailed trend report that elaborates on the why’s and underlying behaviour that drives the current trend.

Organized by Core Studio

Core studio is a new trend and design agency by Hans van Sinderen, Fabian Briels, Emma Wessel and Tijs Gilde. The studio was founded after the success of the POPCORE exhibition in 2016. Together they form an interdisciplinary force, bridging interior, product and fashion design with a keen sensibility for trend.

The studio offers both an advisory role and physical translations of their trendvisions to brands and businesses. In which the advisory role forms the trend forecast from which their designs emerge as tangible solutions.

Annually Core Studio curates an exhibition that explores their current trendvision.

They provide the contextual and conceptual foundation for the exhibition.

To interpret the theme from multiple angles, up and coming designers are invited to design within this vision
