Panta Rei by Nacho Carbonell

Podcast cover
Read more

This is the third video in our special Nacho Carbonell series featuring his latest projects.
Inspired by Italo Calvino ’s masterpiece ” The Invisible Cities ”, Nacho constructed a stylised village that hides within it a mechanism that is archaic and mysterious.
At the opposite end of the 'village' there is a glass block composed of several layers of geological sections which represent the months of the year in turn facing the village. At regular intervals the village suddenly shoots against the glass block destroying it slowly, layer by layer, bullet for bullet, creating a cycle of continuous transformation showing the influence of human nature in our landscape.

Amsterdam Fashion Week 2009, MLY Getting Lost

Podcast cover
Read more

With her new SS2010 collection, Emily Hermans suggests that getting lost is not necessarily something bad or negative. She got her inspiration from Africa, Egypt especially. Two elements are particularly present in both the collection and the styling; the nomadic and the royal.

The nomadic aspect was beautifully visualized at her Amsterdam Fashion Week catwalk show. Not only in the traditional sense, by women carrying al sorts of things on their head. But also by modern nomads with Mad Max-like ratbikes, who have all their posessions hanging from their vehicles.

The royal aspect is expressed in the collection’s pronounced colour composition, which includes coral red, cobalt blue and olive green, as well as different shades of gold. Also, jewelry is used as a motive in a number of collection items, by means of colour, design, neck shape and the combination of matte and shiny yarns.

Real Time with Maarten Baas

Instead of having the usual new furniture line-up, Maarten Baas chose to explore the concept of time with his exhibition Real Time. The movies Maarten made for this project are as varied as having floor sweepers move the clock hands with their brooms to having a poor worker sit in an tiny office moving a pair of pencils to the exact minute. The end result is a 12 hour movie which is also a clock. Matylda interviews Maarten Baas for us and gives us his explanation on his current project. artist: www.maartenbaas.com video: www.designguide.tv interview: www.matandme.net music: www.visuaal.com

For Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Li Edelkoort brought over a part of the Designhuis' Talent show from Eindhoven. Matylda Krzkowski speaks with Li about the exhibition which shows 21 selected designers from 11 different countries, presenting an archaic view of design with an interest in radical primitive materials as earth, cow-dung, wood, cardboard, textiles, bone and hide. They try to escape from a world of over-consumption with unplugged proposals taken from the roots of humanity with humble yet forceful form.

Botanica by Formafantasma

Podcast cover
Read more

Formafantasma was recently commissioned by Plart, to create their own interpretation of the polymeric materials. As many of our daily objects come from oil/plastic they will remain relevant as we move forward to alternatives. Andrea and Simone take a closer look into the history of polymers which goes back centuries in the forms of resins and other methods of preserving.

Botanica is the resulting project, the objects displayed in the collection are designed as if the oil- based era, in which we are living, never took place. The designers researched and hunted for information, digging into the 18th and 19th centuries, when scientists began experimenting draining plants and animals in search for plasticity.

With botanica, studio formafantasma offers a new perspective on plasticity, reinterpreting centuries old technology lost in mass production of oil derivatives.

Drawing Machine by Eske Rex

Podcast cover
Read more

This renaissance inspired, pendulum drawing machine was on display at Mindcraft 11, the Danish crafts exhibit at ventura lambrate. The machine has a installation type appeal that will draw (in the right artistic hands) the most amazing rhythmic pen drawings.
The machine starts off by manually setting the distance of one of the pendulums and then starting the second one. This technique of using weights and pendulums was invented in the renaissance and was applied in the so-called Harmonograph.

We recently visited the LLove hotel in tokyo, a project created by Suzanne Oxenaar, artistic director of the Dutch hotel LLoyd in Amsterdam. The exhibition consisted of several guest rooms created by both Dutch and Japanese designers to celebrate the 400 years of trade and cultural relations Netherlands and Japan have.
The hotel featured rooms designed by Jo Nagasaka, Richard Hutten and Pieke Bergmans amongst others, with each room having the designers signature feel added to it from the furniture to the walls. And the nice part that if you really love the room you could even book a night for it while there.

Vienna Design Week 1

Podcast cover

Designguide.tv visits the Vienna Design Week 2010. In this first episode we take an overview tour of some of our favorite exhibits of the festival. A large collection of italian master designers' light designs was shown at the Bulb Fiction exhibition at Klaus Engelhorn's Depot. The work of young studios such as Polka, Driftdesign and Mischer'Traxler was mixed in forming an interesting view on classic and new lighting design.

The Lichtingstein Museum invited three international design teams to create an exhibition under the motto of table culture. Claesson Koivisto Rune worked with manufacturer Lobmeyer and Wiener Silber to create a simple modern product in an opulant staging. Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey looked into the history of sugar. And architects/designers Olgoj Chorchoj offered a flashback into one's childhood.

The Freiraum at the Museumsquartier asked well known artists to produce design pieces under the label AK7. The label seeks to be active at the interface between art and design and was produced by Tyrolean craft enterprises according to classical craftsmanship techniques, to be sold at 7 pieces each.

Objects with a void

Designguide visited objects with a void and a quick talk with Tetsuo of Study O Portable about the exhibit. ;Void is a term commonly considered useless, but in design, this often overlooked aspect plays a vital role.

Intentional or coincidental, voids in objects have the power to define the function and aesthetics of the objects. It's a dismissed yet integral part of design that captivates our imagination.

Mindcraft15 Milan design week

Podcast cover

One of the most impressive installations of this years Milan design week was at Chiostro Minore di San Simpliciano in the heart of the city. The exhibition Minecraft15 presented some of the best contemporary artists and designers in an amazing setting created by Danish/Italian design studio GamFratesi who was also in charge of the curating. The floors of the cloister were covered with a reflective surface creating an ‘in between’ space which was this years’ theme.
‘We chose the theme “In Between” because it reflects the fact that Danish craftspeople and designers work in a field of tension in between mind and craft. This exhibition covers the full range of that span, including fully developed ideas, conceptual qualities and sublime artistic and technical accomplishments, coupled with a unique understanding of the materials,’

Cohesion of Dutch Invertuals at DDW2014

Podcast cover
Read more

This collection at the Dutch Design Week 2014 is all about Cohesion, in the broadest terms of course. Finding that correlation between objects, surfaces, materials and dimensions. The idea of a 'product' was abandoned and instead they focussed one element, a layer. Think of it as an experiment to be used in a future product or project. The projects are spread across the room with a strong grid on the floor separating them, following the grid in a way as they divide the space. Some works play with the 3d space such as studio Mieke Meijers carefully suspended Frames & Volumes in an exploded view, a play of reflection and light absorption. The work of Daphna Laurens plays with optical depth perception, moire and light with their 'Flat Light' lamp shades while Thomas Vailly & Laura Lynn Jansen take a more subtle approach with optical layers showing tension in their object only when touching it. In any case as always there were plenty of interesting experiments to see in a beautifully crafted exhibition amidst the craziness of the Dutch Design Week, usually one of the highlights for seasoned visitors.

Dutch Invertuals is a yearly changing collection of designers curated by Wendy Plomp. They present in their collections in their home town Eindhoven or during the Milan design week amongst places. In these specific curated and carefully crafted environments the designers to express their future experiments and explorations in material and shape within a very open theme.

Discarded plastic bags are spun into fine yarns and then woven into textiles, a technique Michelle Baggerman developed during her graduation period at the Design Academy Eindhoven. By collaborating with Mexican social design organisation Anudando, textile items are made from plastic bag yarn together with craftspeople from regional parts of Mexico who specialise in weaving, crochet and basket making.

“The craftsmen we work with are extremely skilled and inventive,” tells Michelle. “By offering them a new material to work with, which can basically be collected from the streets, and taking a new perspective on the different products they make."

Protective underwear

Julia van Zanten decided to challenge the issue of the stigma related to incontinence, her inspiration, a family member who suddenly decided they didn't feel comfortable going on long walks with her.
“Practical solutions exist in the form of adult diapers, but these do nothing to address the emotional side of this common problem”
Julia created a washable textile underwear accompanied by washing elements and a campaign to bring awareness to the subject. The aim: to restore some dignity and a sense of security when leaving the home. Take a look and decide for yourself, is this something you'd rather wear then an adult diaper? Julia explains: “In the end it is not about the end product but the experience and conversation around its cycle of use leading to a change in perspective. Through this project I aim to provoke others to consider moments on the margins that could do with the same attention as our emphasis on designing chairs and lamps.”

Milan 2014 shorts: Brera and inner city of Milan

Podcast cover

In this series of short looks at the Milan design week 2014 we take a look at the key events happening in the inner city of Milan and the Brera District.
Ecal took a different approach to the home automation trend. By taking on the subject with a bit of humor it's easy to realise how many solutions simply don't make much sense yet. The impressive thing is though that all the projects presented were fully functional such as the floating hand awaiting to open up the curtains for you, a willing spoon to follow your cup of coffee around and humming fruits combining taste and sound.
The new collection of Hay was also a favourite amongst visitors and journalists, bringing good design and making it accessible to a wider audience. And 2014 also marked the return of Maarten Baas to the Milan design week as well with his 'Baas is in town' show.

Unfortunately the idea that 'high end' design should be made with materials such as copper, bronze, glass and shaped geometrically still is in the minds of the designers on this side of the pond. Is this because the 'market' demands it or a result of schooling? One thing can't be denied, the annual design week has definitely grown and matured in the last few years.
