June 7th until Oktober 3rd 2018

Connections exist in many forms and proportions. For example in human relationships or the connection between mankind and the outside world. But also in (art) objects that form, a new construction or pattern by using impressive combinations of material. To connect is also the aim of our Design & ARTemis platform. In very creative ways we bind and show connections, with our art and design hotel as an interactive stage.

The Dutch Designer speaks ...

“I see things that can be connected in a beautiful way to create a new, surprising combination with a story” The Dutch artist or designer sees the world and its elements from a different perspective, and likes to make new connections that bring out the most surprising designs with an underlying idea. Dutch Design only became known at the end of the eighties, but was immediately put firmly on the map. Very quickly various Dutch designers gained international recognition. Partly thanks to the original concept-thinking, and the use and combination of high-profile materials.

Dutch Design & Connections

The famous Knotted Chair by Marcel Wanders is made of knotted rope consisting of a core of carbon fibers and a top layer hardened with epoxy resin. The chest of drawers of Tejo Remy, which consists of a collection of separate drawers held together with a belt. Another example is Christien Meindertsma who makes connections by combining and categorizing different materials with a story.

Design With A Dutch Touch....

From an investigative and challenging way of designing, new combinations of material and ideas are made. In this way, the designers and artists are not only focused on the use of the object itself, but also they want to stimulate the world. In short, Dutch Design releases emotion and, in addition to the connection of various materials, it also connects people and their world. During the exhibition ‘Connections’ we will show the vision and creation from the Dutch artist and designer, of the different forms of connections and their influence in the rapidly changing world of nowadays. As a visitor you can also stimulate all your senses by the food design that connects in all its facets.
