Letterproeftuin is a traveling open-source designstudio. A neo-craft workshop that emphasizes the creative process and exhibits its results.
Letterproeftuin: “Our printing machines where specially made. The main goal was to travel light and so the idea was born to shrink our whole installation into something that is portable. Our idea is to keep each technique in one box.”
“It is a counter-action to the fast nowaday design tools and an invitation for designers to get their hands dirty in order to inspire, discuss and share knowledge. Based on a passion for printmaking we combine craftsmanship and technology with inspiration, collaboration, hard work and fun.”
“We don’t have a real home-base. We try to build a site-specific installation that functions as our studio each time we do a project. The work in progress or the work in process is the ‘exhibition’. For us it is about the chemistry that erupts when you put a group of enthusiastic designers in one room. Everything open and all knowledge shared.”
