During Dutch Design Week, we will be introducing you to the festival’s Hidden Gems. Special locations who we feel are the stand-outs of this edition.
MESSMERIZING is a contemporary forward looking exhibition at Eindhoven Central Station. A space where designers & artists connect and reconnect the visitors on multiple levels. Everything is made to enchant and mesmerize in an overwhelming raw space with colorful design-pieces.
The Gateway to DDW
The MESSMERIZING location is set in the vacant NS (dutch railway) space based at the heart of Eindhoven. Job Keja and Sandra Keja Planken have chosen this MESSMERIZING theme, showing the Mind and Material SET UP for the present and future in materials & designs. While showing how to program unique abandoned spaces like this for they soon realized the space was to large for just them two. The curated objects provide enchanting experiences. In short bold looking works presented in a unique way with the ambition to blend the boundaries between art & design with joy inducing objects and a mindset on the future. A design playhouse.
