Kazerne - Home of Design - is located downtown in Eindhoven. The hotspot where the worlds of wine, dine, design, art and technology come together. With over 1.000 sqm of recent work by leading designers.
Drop by for an espresso, delicious food, refreshing drinks and to discover the work of both leading and promising design talent. During Dutch Design Week 2018 we are proud to exhibitthe installation SOFTWEAR by Lidewij Edelkoort andKiki van Eijk for Google.
Already in 1998, trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort foresaw how technology would be blending into our day-to-day life. Now, 20 years later, she revisits her concept with the presentation of SOFTWEAR, an installation that demonstrates how new hardware products by Google seamlessly integrate into our daily lives, instead of disturbing them. Kiki van Eijk designed a series of tapestries that ‘weave’ into the SOFTWEAR story, starting with collages created with the same textiles that were used by Google in their new products. SOFTWEAR's integration of textiles, tactility and wellness calls for a discussion about the future of technology, big data and its integration in our lives. The installation made its debut at the Salone del Mobile in Milan last April and is now on show in the Netherlands for the first time.
