Out of the Ordinary
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen celebrates the tenth anniversary of Studio Wieki Somers, the design studio of Dylan van den Berg and Wieki Somers, with the exhibition ‘Out of the Ordinary’.
Dylan van den Berg and Wieki Somers see many extraordinary qualities in our everyday surroundings. They search for the stories that lie behind our daily rituals. Their products are remarkable not only for their storylines but also for their use of materials and technical ingenuity.
Coinciding with the exhibition works by Studio Wieki Somers will also feature in Galerie VIVID’s anniversary exhibition at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and in Galerie Kreo’s inaugural exhibition in London. Furthermore, a lavishly illustrated book elucidating the design philosophy of Studio Wieki Somers will be published. Photographer Elspeth Diederix has been commissioned to visualise Studio Wieki Somers’ research themes.
