A Dutch Auction by I Wait Here at DesignKwartier 2016 // 27-28 may, The Hague

DESIGN AUCTION – questioning the wage of designers

At DesignKwartier 2016 in The Hague, design & art initiative I Wait Here presents an unconventional auction with design products of young Dutch design talents. Designers are asked to calculate their material costs, hours and research investment. By setting the bottom bid at the cost price of an item, visitors are challenged to think about what the idea, time and effort of the designer is worth.

Designers were asked to part from a unique object, for instance a piece of research, an object that is very difficult to produce or to costly (either in time or money) for a retail collection. The auction works a two way street, as bidders have a one time opportunity to buy exclusive pieces against a competitive price and at the same time raising awareness on the position of the designer in our western society.

EXPO NEXT UP – JEROEN JUNTE 21 Feb. 2016 — 30 Sep. 2016 // Kazerne Eindhoven

February 21, 2016

Dutch Design van een betrokken post-crisis generatie.

Voor deze Kazerne expositie selecteerde gastcurator Jeroen Junte een overzicht van de jongste lichting Dutch designers. Met bijna 200 werken van meer dan 60 ontwerpers wordt voor het eerst de generatie in kaart gebracht die is gevormd in de kredietcrisis-tijd. Junte: “Betrokkenheid en onbevangenheid zijn opvallende eigenschappen van deze jonge ontwerpers. Ze denken in kansen en oplossingen, niet in problemen en obstakels.”

Dutch Design Week Eindhoven 2015 – Exhibition Smalle Haven 4

October 20, 2015

New Work
Archiving Water – Colored Drops
Colored Drops is a design research from studio Lotte de Raadt where a new method for treating ceramics is being researched with a self developed glazing technique. The glazing behaves unpredictable like water – it finds its own way and leaves intricate but beautiful and tactile structures behind. The process is designed, the outcome is left to chance. The collection consists out of plates with different textures and colors which archive the flow of water.

In a vacant building at the Smalle Haven, Lotte de Raadt and Nienke Hoogvliet with Xandra van der Eijk will present new works. The space will become a place where knowledge is shared, work is being done and research is exhibited. 17 – 25 oktober 2015! come and visit us.
