Conflict - Dutch Invertuals

25th October 2012

By far one of my favourite shows during Dutch Design week and one not to be missed is Dutch Invertuals. Again this year Wendy Plomp and the Invertuals didn't dissapoint!

Exploring the ideals of conflict this year the exhibition was curated beautifully with the actual exhibit hidden from view as one first entered peaking a conflict of interest between the idea of sharing and showing something to the public, but at the same time keeping it hidden.

Some of the usual suspects were present, but also a few new faces within the Invertuals group. Exploring conflict within design, collaboration, materiality and process each of the designers or design duo's explored engaging design outcomes.

I particularly loved the vases from Jeroen Wand who used the basic shape of a vase and repeated it but using different materials processes on the outside. Texturally he worked liquid and set plaster 'conflicting' against each other resulting in beautifully tactile objects.

The coloured glazes on the ceramics from Kirstie van Noort and Rogier Arents were also beautiful. Collaborating for the first time they brought conflict in their opposing approaches to design. Working with natural pigments such as red cabbage they play with colour. When exposed to varying PH levels the colours change. A beautiful film accompanies their pieces.

Dutch Invertuals runs till the 28th October.
