Show #11 -ARTEK 'Art & Technology'
June 8th to September 24th 2016
Not many furniture or lighting firms can say they have been producing their designs since the 1930’s, as is the case with the Finnish brand Artek.
It’s amazing that the revolutionary designs Alvar Aalto created in those early years are still in production today, and are surrounded now by important works of historical masters Ilmari Tapiovaara, Tapio Wirkkala, Eero Aarnio and Yrjö Kukkapuro.
But it doesn’t stop there, in the spirit of its founders, contemporary designers like Konstantin Grcic and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec are stil creating new pieces with that pure mix of Art & Technology, the essence of Artek.
With great pride we present to you this exhibition which has been created by Artek to help shine more light on their creative craftsmanship.
Show #12 - CURIOSITIES by Jaime Hayon
October 9th 2016 to January 21st 2017
Jaime is one of a kind. Ten years ago he took the design scene by storm creating from the very start a personal expressive style.
The more we get to know his work the more he blows us away with his amazing fantasy and humor. A true love for life and creation oozes from all his furniture, lighting, decorative pieces and one off artworks. Every object is loaded with his refined, colorful, Mediterranean passion.
Next to the artistic quality we should not forget the commercial succes his very divers works have created for the different brands.
We are truly proud that together with our partners we have brought the Spanish form and style master Jaime Hayon to Utrecht with a very contemporary show!
