Exhibition of young design talent in cooperation with the Design Academy Eindhoven. CILO shows you the work of these participants: Studio OOOMS, Nadine Sterk, Vivian Wierts, Wieki Somers, Wouter Scheublin, Tomm Veldhuis, Susan Verhijen, Monique Goossens, Cris Bartels, Mara Skujeniece, Chris Kabel, Sander Wassink, Tom Dissel, Bertjan Pot.
Twenty pieces have been chosen to show a multiple view of interior design nowadays. All products are a reflection of our current time-period. A period when social issues are reflected in objects, new materials are used and age-old habits are charished or rejected. A time to think about what enriches- or impoverishes us.
The designers found quality in their daily environment and translated this sense into their creations. The products which emerge are more than just functional. They are products which communicate through inner qualities, characters of our time.
During October 2008 Studio OOOMS will be showing work in Torino. This third event-exhibition in the calendar of Torino 2008 World Design Capital opens to the public in a setting symbolically and structurally suited to housing the results of an unusual encounter between mixed communities, designers and companies: the Palafuksas in Piazza della Republica 25.
In the centre of a square that tells the story of waves of immigration and stratified attempts at adaptation, which speaks Piemontese, writes in Arabic and wears Chinese clothes, rises the luminous and open container of an exhibition that includes among its participants highly important names in world design, from the Japanese Naoto Fukasawa, to the Catalan Martì Guixè, the Brazilian Campana brothers and Jasper Morrison from Britain,
but also the Italians Giulio Iacchetti, Matteo Ragni, Carlotta de Bevilacqua and many others, for a total of forty eight protagonists of unusual triangles of designers, companies and communities.
The Family of Form – 60 years Design Academy Eindhoven
From 13 January through 23 March 2008 the Designhuis Eindhoven opens its doors to The Family of Form, an exhibition with works of three generations of graduates from Design Academy Eindhoven. In 2007 the exhibition was received with much enthusiasm at the Salone del Mobile in Milan and the Institut Néerlandais in Paris. Now for the first time and in its most extensive form The Family of Form can be admired in the Netherlands. The reason for this retrospective is the sixtieth anniversary of the Design Academy Eindhoven.
