Imaginings | Dutch Design by Kiki van Eijk
The Dutch designer is known for her fantastical designs: from whimsical clocks to wall hangings for Google and poetic window displays for the French house Hermès. With set designer Theun Mosk, she creates an exhibition in the TextielMuseum that appeals to multiple senses.
Van Eijk has been making her mark on Dutch Design for 20 years. To celebrate two decades of her contribution to this internationally acclaimed design aesthetic, the TextielMuseum presents highlights from her oeuvre in a unique way. Together with Mosk, they challenge you to playfully discover Van Eijk’s designs. Take a look in a large diorama that showcases her tablecloth and tableware, zoom in on the designer’s sketches with special camera’s, or see objects appear in the lighting while moving around.
The exhibition shows the breadth of Van Eijk’s talent: from colourful wall hangings and luxury textile objects to furniture, clocks and lamps. The departure point for all her work is a lively curiosity that sees her experiment with different materials and production methods including glass, ceramics, bronze and textiles. This versatility results in fantastical and quirky designs that cast a fresh light on everyday objects.
