Maarten Baas Makes Time at Dutch Design Week 2016

Maarten Baas Makes Time at Dutch Design Week 2016

Mimi Berlin Blogger team visited ‘Maarten Baas Makes Time’; an interdisciplinary exhibition curated by Dutch designer Maarten Baas, designed by Baas himself together with theatre director Joris van Midde, at the Dutch Design Week of 2016.  Binding factor of this exhibition was, of course; Time and Dutch design.

Situated at the entrance of the former VDMA Garage was a timeline of 15 chairs, designed by Maarten Baas, opposite of Maarten Baas’ newest work. The next space was filled with work by different artists like the ‘Minuted‘ installation by Gijs van Bon and Strandbeest, one of the evolutionairy animals by Theo Jansen, surrounded by a grid on the floor made with white sand named ‘Fossil Field’ by Iris van Herpen.

Saint Augustine Church in Eindhoven

Saint Augustine Church in Eindhoven

A church in the city of Eindhoven, Brabant, The Netherlands. The church is situated next to the convent, that’s why it’s kept so clean and tidy. If you want to visit this place you have 2 options (in our opinion)

!- Just go and have a look, see what a typical Dutch church looks like (it won’t be there for long the parish is getting smaller and smaller)

2- Go visit the Saint Augustine Church during the Dutch Design Week, it will be transformed by designer/artist Aart van Asseldonk into a design-fest named; “The Allegory of the South”
