Post Fossil (israel)

Time has come for extreme change.
Society is ready to break away from last century for good. To break with creative conventions, theoretic rules and stigmas that now are questioned, challenged and broken. To break with a materialistic mentality replacing it with the materialisation of modest earth-bound and recomposed matter.

In the aftermath of the worst financial crisis in decades, a period of glamorous and streamlined design for design's sake comes to an end. A new generation of designers retrace
their roots, refine their earth and research their history, sometimes going back to the beginning of time.

In this process, they form and formulate design around exactly these natural and sustainable materials, favouring timber, hide, pulp, fibre, earth and fire; like contemporary cavemen, they
reinvent shelter, redesign tools and manmade machines, and conceptualise archaic rituals for a more modest, contented and contained lifestyle. Like a Fred Flintstone of tomorrow.

Atelierdorp gets closer

Atelierdorp is an unconventional and occasional collective of designers who feel united by design. For the second year in a row, the young designers present a group exhibition showing their personal work. As they have moved their studios to a new location in the center of Eindhoven, they invite you to have a closer look at their work and the place where it´s created. Atelierdorp opens its doors.

In their new headquarters, Atelierdorp shows how different styles can co-exist without conflict, how multiple identities grow and how a community proves its importance in a world ruled by the individual.

The designers got the opportunity to transform a former Philips building into an inspiring workplace. Because the exhibition is situated amongst the ateliers, laboratories, kitchen and living room, the visitor will get a 'view behind the scenes'. Apart from an impressive show, generated by close teamwork, there will be new works shown from internationally acknowledged designers.

The Atelierdorp gets closer exhibition will be featuring the work of the following designers :

Fernando Arias van Oordt, Djim Berger, Mickael Boulay, Nacho Carbonell, Julien Carretero, Paloma Castaño Sanchez, Alejandro Cerón, Sara Chiopris, Lizanne Dirkx, Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence, Salvatore Franzese, Geoffroy Gillant, Henry Lawrence, Anaïck Lejart, Gil Molho, Jason Page, Vanya Polunin, Chloé Pouzoulet, Fraser Ross, Paulo Sellmayer, Makiko Shinoda, Emiel van Boekel, Kajsa Willner

99% STOER

What is absolutely 100% pure? Does not every object, every thought and expression have a small deviation? Or a shadow side or a sparkling light. A wink or smile hidden behind a robust fasade.This is highlighted in the exhibition A & D 99% STOER (TOUGH). 'Style' is a feeling that is generated by forms, materials, appearance or attitude. And there are always nuances to be found.Be surprised by the variety of art and design. From interior, painting, objects and bags and woven wall panels. What do you think? 99% or 1 STOER %...?

TALENT 2009

The second edition of Talent presents 175 objects and installations from the 2009 graduates of 30 European design institutes and universities. And once more it becomes palpable just how vital and in perpetual movement the design discipline is in Europe, its education so knowledgeable and creative. Hereby some observations on the dominant currents in the new work of emerging talent.

"Many small parts make a whole"

With a graduation year that is totally absorbed and under pressure of a deep financial crisis, many candidates literary took refuge and nestled themselves in the small and the well-known, in an ordinary world of everyday. After all, many small parts do make a whole.
The questions stay close to home and try to enlighten the nitty gritty of daily existence with a playful approach. A talent for improvisation and a narrative sense of imagination go hand in hand to hold ensuing problems at bay.
The visual language used is simple and sustainable and comes from house and garden using paper, pulp, felt, wood, glass, yarn and ribbon and electrical cord-the haberdashery of design.
The image of a neat human being emerges with multiple plank, cupboards and clothes to live in and constructed huts to hide in. Yet, also the image of a fantasy being creating his own dream world through illustrations, pattern, wallpaper, dresses and artefacts.
Dream and reality merge in a new domain where all borders blur: between art and design, between man and woman, between religion and fetishism, and between the second and third dimension. This pop-up generation is generating energy from simplicity.
from the infinitely small emerges the universal.

Graduation galleries 2009

Fresh talents of the Design Academy present their graduation work during Graduation Galleries 2009, an exhibition of approximately 140 works of both the Bachelor's and the Master's courses.

The graduation projects of Design Academy Eindhoven are often critical and characterised by a high conceptual level: students think about all aspects involved in the research and design stage of the product. These questions therefore do not only concern the design itself, but also focus on the need for the product and its applicability, functionality, usability and sustainability. In this way, the students receive the broadest possible training; they can develop their own thoughts about products and services, information strategies and scenarios for processes of change.

At Design Academy Eindhoven, man and society take centre stage: the educational programme is designed on the basis of social phenomena rather than traditional design disciplines. Themes such as globalisation, environmental issues, digitisation, and the economic situation play a major role. This results in graduation works that go far beyond the initial form concept - precisely what 'Dutch Design' is so famous for. The students will be present all week to explain their work.

Apart from these works, the exhibition presents a number of so-called 'Vriendenprojecten' (Friends' Projects): products that have emerged from the collaboration with (inter) national companies. The exhibition is designed by Piet Hein Eek and composed by Alexander van Slobbe, creative director Design Academy Eindhoven.
