Dutch Invertuals is a group of designers who want to push the limits of their craft by focusing on the experiment. The name of the new collection by Dutch Invertuals is BODY LANGUAGE.
Wendy Plomp (initiator and curator): “This collection is an exploration. Crafting materials with character rather than function. Flirting with new aesthetics and novel usability. At the same time the designers cultivate the presence of a new kind of language: body language.”
“In the context of a new way of life in the future, they explore the aesthetics and complexities of an increasingly virtual world. Technology is becoming invisible. The non-tactile world is gaining ground in the understanding of who we are. While physical objects lose their functions, forms are freed, orphaned and adopted. What is left are merely bodies reflecting our identities. This requires a renegotiation of the space around us and its effects on being human.”
