Fuorisalone 2015: Studio rENs

Fuorisalone 2015: Studio rENs

rENs presented their newest work at the Ventura Lambrate Area: “True Colours” and “Fade to Stay”. Designers Renee Mennen and Stefanie van Keijsteren are more than interested in colours; they analyze, experiment and dissect the phenomenon in many different ways. We were impressed by the “True Colours” project, in which they used various black markers on different kinds of cloth and drenched that into just plain water, in order to “break the black color down” into various shades. The result of this seemingly simple experiment is a marvelous fabric collection of 81 different designs. Studio rENs started their company in 2008 and have been collaborating with partners like Desso, Cor Unum, Zuiderzeemuseum, Textielmuseum and Lynfabrikken.

Fuorisalone 2014: Workmates

Fuorisalone 2014: Workmates showing “Depicted” in The Lambrate Area in Milano during Milano Design Week 2014. Workmates are 4 designers (Rick Tegelaar, Caspar Tolhuisen, Joris de Groot and Klaas Kuiken) from Arnhem, The Netherlands. Or as they say themselves: “We are an open collective. the composition of which is always growing and changing in an organic fashion. The products of Workmates are characterised by a hands-on approach in which attempting, experimenting and working in a workshop is important” To emphasise this craftsmanship they showed their designs in a raw ambiance, an old garage, and placed their work in/on rough wooden crates. We, at Mimi Berlin, think that all the designs we saw are, next to clever and interesting, beautiful and they will be so even when placed in a more “slick” environment.
