EXPO: ONGOING DIALOGUE – New Design By Old Friends
As a token of appreciation, ONGOING DIALOGUE celebrates the role of the design community in establishing Kazerne, combining recent works by old friends with brand new talent. The exhibition shows various concepts and installations with urgent themes such as impermanence (Studio Drift), imperfection (Léa Mazy) and the role of technology in daily life (Lidewij Edelkoort & Kiki van Eijk for Google).
The new exhibition ‘ONGOING DIALOGUE – New Design By Old Friends’ is partly situated in the former military barracks in the center of design capital Eindhoven, which have been recently renovated with much respect for its heritage. In December Kazerne will open as a Home of Design: a unique concept where guests can eat, drink, meet, work and even sleep surrounded by museum quality exhibitions. In the adjacent warehouse, which was renovated and opened in 2014, visitors can discover recent work by old friends – as can be expected from Kazerne with both established names and promising talent. For example, Joost van Bleiswijk presents an outdoor kitchen, Maarten Baas an ode to MB and Léa Mazy her Design Academy graduation project. Both Modular and Ontwerpduo & Cleary Led present lighting innovations, Lucas & Lucas their IKEA hacking project and Studio Drift the enchanting Meadow. Lidewij Edelkoort & Kiki van Eijk will present the Dutch première of SOFTWEAR for Google.
SOFTWEAR - EDELKOORT & VAN EIJK FOR GOOGLE
Already in 1998, trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort conceived the idea of technology blending in 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. 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.
