Modebelofte is present again this year at the Dutch Design Week (DDW). Their fashion exhibition is titled Shape Shifters. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the preview yesterday and made 2 video’s for you. Not too many so there is something left to discover for yourself. Oh, and by the way: Modebelofte has changed its name into New Order of Fashion.
The fashion exhibition
The fashion exhibition ‘Shape Shifters’ by Modebelofte / New Order of Fashion opened yesterday with a preview. Not everything was finished yet, so we had to wait a little while for the crew to finish, wow, the stress of it all!
Shape Shifters can be seen from October 20 through 28 in the ‘Warehouse of Innovation’ (that’s the former V&D department store building in a highstreet of Eindhoven.) as part of the Dutch Design Week 2018.

In the world of Dutch Design there is this complex way of presenting. Almost every designer works with more than one collective, organisation, experiment, project, brand, manufacturer, sponsor, curator and god knows what else, besides having their own toko, (that means shop in Bahasa) which is almost always named after themselves, adding the word ‘studio’ either in front or after the designer’s given name.
If you’re not familiar with these kind of systems and, even more important; if you don’t know all the names by heart, you are often not quite sure what you’re watching. Seeing the same designers scattered allover the DDW can be confusing as well. We, at Mimi Berlin Blogger Team, don’t like that, so we did some research and came up with the following ‘main events’ situated at the VDMA building. Continue reading →
Dots at the Kazerne during the Dutch Design Week 2017
Mimi Blogger Team visited the Kazerne during the Dutch Designweek #DDW17 and noticed a lot of round shapes, dots and circles. Even the shop entrance was decorated with big, neon dots; that’s the work of Vollaerszwart, citydressers, they re-produced ‘Let’s Stick Together’ which they made in 2006 for ‘The World of Witte de With’ festival in Rotterdam.

We also encountered some other shapes and forms at the Kazerne premises ofcourse, but that’s really beside the point of this post. (pun intended, duh!) We will tell you in a nutshell what’s to be seen at the Kazerne. The main event: the impressive installation of the 101 chair by Maarten Baas x Lensvelt, including the introduction of the stackable version of the same chair: it has different legs and looks good! We posted earlier about ‘The Anti-Efficients’ exhibition at the Kazerne: read that post HERE. We’d also like to mention that new work by artist Peter Zwaan is on show.

In October of each year, Dutch Design Week (DDW) takes place in Eindhoven. This year; 2017, it is held from 21-29 October. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited and reports to you; our readers. Let us start with one of our favorite presentations so far: in4nite (as in; infinite possibilities)
For the in4nite exhibition Low & Bonar (international marketleaders and producers of high-tech performance materials) invited 10 designers from Arnhem (productdesigners, architects and a graphic designer) to experiment with Colback®. Why only designers from Arnhem, you ask of us: well, just like Low & Bonar they all work at Industrial Park the ‘Kleefse Waard’ in Arnhem, they probably met up at the local canteen?!
3D-printed Colbak by Rick Tegelaar
Pleated Colback combined with wood for blinds by Tyn van Orsouw
Pleated Colback for the ‘Rilly Nice Lamp” by Erik Stehmann
Glass panels with burned Colback. The Ghost Collection by Charley Reijnders. In the back the work of Klaas Kuiken.
Lamps with shades made from Colback. ‘in4nite Shades’ by Klaas Kuiken
Mieke Lucia created acoustic panels made with Colback®, including the presentation of her ‘Color Colback® Research Palette’.
Colback used to create a plisseé material for chairs. ‘Pleated Seat’ by Joris de Groot
Graphic design on Colback by Dana Dijkgraaf
Anyways; Colback® is an overall brand name for a non-woven cloth-like material which is used to support technical fabrics used in transportation, interior carpeting, resilient flooring and for decorative solutions. (read more colback-nonwovens.com)
Since the Colback® “cloth” is never used as a visible material by itself we think it’s a smart move of Low & Bonar to invite designers who are trained to come up with products that are gentle to the eye (and brain). As L&B state themselves: “The ‘in4nite’ project enables Low & Bonar to provide relevant design solutions extrapolating the aesthetical and functional properties of the Colback Technology.”
After visiting the top floor of ‘Building TQ’, which is filled with the results, we guess L&R can say that they succeeded; most of the ‘reinventions’ and/or designs seemed useful and ready for production. We think a visit to the ‘in4nite’ exhibit is certainly worth your while! Continue reading →
