The past inspires the future of Cor Unum
This jubilee year of Cor Unum, the recent move to design house Pompen & Verlouw and new forms of collaboration with leading Dutch designers are basically the justification of a Future/History collection marking all these steps of Cor Unum. Lead by the theme Future/History, during Dutch Design Week new work will be presented by Floris Hovers, Bas van Beek, Mae Engelgeer, Kranen / Gille, Maarten Baas, Visser & Meijwaard, Kiki van Eijk, Joost van Bleiswijk and Claudy Jongstra.
The history of Cor Unum is long - this year the ceramics house exists 65 years - and its story is impressive. Cor Unum manufactures with great passion and craftsmanship beautifully ceramics from nationally and internationally leading designers. Cor Unum - literally: one of heart - is supported by many: by ambassadors and students, by designers and volunteers, by people with a distance to the labour market and by professionals. This jubilee year of Cor Unum is marked by a considerable step forward. Recently the ceramic house found a new home for its workshop, gallery and a shop (for the first time in its existence) in the monumental building Pompen & Verlouw in the centre of 's-Hertogenbosch. A strategic location which connects modern and historic ’s-Hertogenbosch: Future/History!
