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 →
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.
Next we passed musician Joost van Dijk playing the cello together with beats of time. The music was wonderful by itself but also perfect as a restful ‘backdrop’ for the next surprise of the ‘Maarten Baas Makes Time’ exhibition:
‘12 Times‘. Twelve wooden booths, all with a little window and a poem by Ingmar Heytze pinned to the side, placed in a circle. Inside the booths were situations to be seen in a mix of tableaux vivants, performances and/or design objects. For instance: a women was Continue reading →
