Revaluate

20th October 2013

Dutch Invertuals is the jewel in the crown of Dutch Design week and certainly did not disappoint this year. Exploring design in a world of collapsing economies and fading border cultures as the world becomes one global village they reconsider unknown trades and alternative values.

For the first time all the design studios worked in collaboration with Dutch workshops Beeldenstorm, Sundaymorning@ekwc and Nationaal Glasmuseum pushing the boundaries of the workshops materiality and process.

Beautifully created as always by Wendy Plomp sand was used to coat the space as a comment on material in its most raw form. The use of sand is a strong theme at Dutch Design week being used on a series of projects. (see future posts about students at DAE and Studio Harm Rensink). I will do some further posts on the actual projects in the coming days, but here are some taster images.

For the importance of sand as a material Stylesight subscribers can explore our Harmony SS15 Mega trend that utilises sand beautifully in design.
