Dutch invertuals in Milan 2012
Inflatable lightbulbs by Nacho Carbonell
Inspired by the four classical elements, earth, air, fire and water, Nacho Carbonell has incorporated subtle references to these through the design of his hand made lightbulb. In an ingenious way, water in the bulb creates a sea-like light reflection from the light source, (the representation of fire) into the environment where the bulb is placed. Additionally, the user can interact with the lightbulbs size by pumping air into the lightbulb, another reference to an element.
This in turn changes the reflection of the water in the bulb. Be it by inflating or by pouring, hanging or floating, this lightbulb demands from us that we play with it and define how we would like to use it, and always with subtle references to the earth, air, fire and water.
Karimoku's New Standard
Karimoku new standard collaborates with emerging international designers focussing on high quality craftsmenship combined with contempory design. The products are predominantly made of solid Japanese hardwoods such as maple, chestnut and oak. The collection was presented in a 100 year old aparatment in Milan during the salone di mobile 2012. In addition to existing products, 9 prototypes were also exhibited. Designers like Scholten & Baijings, Big game, Sylvain willenz, Lucien Gumy and the Karimoku design team were shown in the 4 rooms of this apartment.

Booo lightbulb designed by FormafantasmaBooo lightbulb designed by FormafantasmaBooo lightbulb designed by FormafantasmaBooo lightbulb designed by Formafantasma
The organic reference is explicit on the light designed by Studio Formafantasma which looks as if a traditional bulb has been stopped in the process of transforming into a leaf. Unusually asymmetrical the light is meant to be use as a single piece or as a flock of glowing leafs.
With the limited edition the organic world is not anymore only a formal reference. As a continuation of the previous work of the studio â€˜Botanicaâ€™, the vessel of the bulb is produced with a 19th century material re-developed by Formafantasma composed by a polymer extracted from insect excrement that colonize trees mixed with wood powder.

Knitting 3d patterns by Borre Akkersdijk
Borre Akkersdijk, who graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven last year, worked in the TextielLab to produce knitted textiles that are padded with a filler thread. The result is a range of â€˜stuffedâ€™ garments, including trousers, a parka, a cape and a jacket. When the pattern components emerge from the machine they are ready-made.
The fabricâ€™s patterns are derived from an old kilim, which had belonged to a favourite aunt who recently died. This rug was woven by hand, so it exhibits crooked lines, irregularities and the marks of age, features that Borre imitated in the digital conversion. It is like his personal signature in an otherwise industrial product.
Borre Akkersdijk experimented with the production of thickly padded knits on the large circular knitting machine in the TextielLab. The machine was specially fitted with so-called padding mangle for this project, making it possible to produce knits that are padded out with filler threads. The investigation focused on the knitting of lengths of cloth in which the pattern components are filled out. The edges of each section remain attached, so the padding remains inside when the pattern components are cut from the base. Finishing is no longer necessary.
The first test, with just a sleeve, pointed in the right direction immediately. He then carried out colour tests on the actual pattern, a hand-drawn kilim motif. How do the colours mix together and to what extent must they vary and follow the pattern? He eventually decided to knit the garments in colour mixes, because this renders the fabric more lively and exciting.

The exhibition can be seen until September 2011.www.textielmuseum.nl
Font of the loom
Bertjan Pot presents his new tablecloths today for the textile museum in Tilburg. Designguide.tv was commissioned to make this â€˜making ofâ€™ movie of his project â€˜Font of the loomâ€™ which takes us through his process of designing a typeface that could be weaved with pixel precise fabric bonds.
Bertjan chose to use a series of texts downloaded from wikipedia and used those to weave the tablecloths with. At first view the tablecloths look a little mundane but when you look closer youâ€™ll see biographies of Michael Jackson or a detailed description of what a Haiku is. The most important thing is, according to Bertjan, not the content of the texts but the actual letter and with this project he tries to bring across the beauty of typography with technical precision.
behind the scenes at atelierdorp
A rare look into the process of setting up an exhibition, something thats usually not done until a few hours before opening up to the public.
Atelierdorp is an unconventional and almost incidental collective of designers who feel united by design. For the second year in a row, the young designers present a group exhibition of their personal work. As they have moved their studios to a new location in the centre of Eindhoven, they invite you to have a closer look at their work and the place where it has been created. Atelierdorp opens its doors.
In their new headquarters, Atelierdorp shows how different styles can co-exist without conflict, how multiple identities grow and how a community proves its importance in a world ruled by the individual.…
Botanica by Formafantasma
Formafantasma was recently commissioned by Plart, to create their own interpretation of the polymeric materials. As many of our daily objects come from oil/plastic they will remain relevant as we move forward to alternatives. Andrea and Simone take a closer look into the history of polymers which goes back centuries in the forms of resins and other methods of preserving.
Botanica is the resulting project, the objects displayed in the collection are designed as if the oil- based era, in which we are living, never took place. The designers researched and hunted for information, digging into the 18th and 19th centuries, when scientists began experimenting draining plants and animals in search for plasticity.
With botanica, studio formafantasma offers a new perspective on plasticity, reinterpreting centuries old technology lost in mass production of oil derivatives.

Drawing Machine by Eske Rex
This renaissance inspired, pendulum drawing machine was on display at Mindcraft 11, the Danish crafts exhibit at ventura lambrate. The machine has a installation type appeal that will draw (in the right artistic hands) the most amazing rhythmic pen drawings.
The machine starts off by manually setting the distance of one of the pendulums and then starting the second one. This technique of using weights and pendulums was invented in the renaissance and was applied in the so-called Harmonograph.

VT Prototype 2 "Polar Bear"
Named 'Polar Bear' after it's muscular forms and metallic white shine, this table by Arias van Oordt is the second prototype that uses his innovative forming techniques. Sheets of metal have been pressed and pulled apart to reveal bends and volume that provide strength and form. This innovative forming process results in a form and volume rarely seen before, and though unconventional, it gives fully useable results.
"My priority is to use materials in their full potential", said Arias van Oordt. "In this case I recognized the possibilities of pulling and pressing metal, which then had to be controlled or "tamed" in order to create forms at will. By creating a structure that could pull with several tons of pressure, and after 12 prototype tests, this final working table named 'Polar Bear' came to be."
The "VT PR2 Polar Bear" in its full name, is a prototype and no more like it will be produced by the designer. Instead, Arias van Oordt prefers to continue experimenting with new designs and is now looking for a company interested in producing a version of it.

Tokyo LLove hotel
We recently visited the LLove hotel in tokyo, a project created by Suzanne Oxenaar, artistic director of the Dutch hotel LLoyd in Amsterdam. The exhibition consisted of several guest rooms created by both Dutch and Japanese designers to celebrate the 400 years of trade and cultural relations Netherlands and Japan have.
The hotel featured rooms designed by Jo Nagasaka, Richard Hutten and Pieke Bergmans amongst others, with each room having the designers signature feel added to it from the furniture to the walls. And the nice part that if you really love the room you could even book a night for it while there.

Vienna Design Week 1
Designguide.tv visits the Vienna Design Week 2010. In this first episode we take an overview tour of some of our favorite exhibits of the festival. A large collection of italian master designers' light designs was shown at the Bulb Fiction exhibition at Klaus Engelhorn's Depot. The work of young studios such as Polka, Driftdesign and Mischer'Traxler was mixed in forming an interesting view on classic and new lighting design.
The Lichtingstein Museum invited three international design teams to create an exhibition under the motto of table culture. Claesson Koivisto Rune worked with manufacturer Lobmeyer and Wiener Silber to create a simple modern product in an opulant staging. Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey looked into the history of sugar. And architects/designers Olgoj Chorchoj offered a flashback into one's childhood.
The Freiraum at the Museumsquartier asked well known artists to produce design pieces under the label AK7. The label seeks to be active at the interface between art and design and was produced by Tyrolean craft enterprises according to classical craftsmanship techniques, to be sold at 7 pieces each.

Objects with a void
Designguide visited objects with a void and a quick talk with Tetsuo of Study O Portable about the exhibit. ;Void is a term commonly considered useless, but in design, this often overlooked aspect plays a vital role.
Intentional or coincidental, voids in objects have the power to define the function and aesthetics of the objects. It's a dismissed yet integral part of design that captivates our imagination.

Continue Time - Kinetic artwork clock
YDN designguide.tv was recently commissioned to produce this video of Sander Mulders' Continue Time clock. We show to process of building the clock to the final product.
Here's a text about the history of the clock from the designer:
"Our office clock fell, causing the minutes- and second pointer to come off and they were just laying in the transparent cover. Witnessing the random patterns that occurred while the hour pointer still rotated, the concept for the Continue Time was born.
On this Continue Time clock, two out of the three pointers rotate around another pointer, instead of the central point on the clock face, as with traditional clocks. The resulting kinetic artwork, and fully functional clock, is continuously changing its shape during a full rotation of twelve hours."

Formafantasma: Moulding Traditions
Simone & Andrea took inspiration in the history of a small city in Sicily, Caltagirone. The little town, famous for its ceramics and local tradition, has over 300 craftsmen working in the city. As an iconic base and as inspiration they used one of the most famous traditional Sicilian artworks "Teste id moro" referring to the vases which show the face of a native African. The once conquering Moors returned several centuries later as immigrants, leaving behind an ever changing mix of traditions and materials to be absorbed as culture. The duo rethought the iconic vase and added their own design touch during their Masters at the Design Academy Eindhoven. The distant worlds of artifacts and illegal immigration began to blur together revealing unusual correlations. This resulted in several objects in the "Moulding Tradition" collection.

Master of the rituals
We take a closer look at 3 projects of Master of design graduates from the Design Academy Eindhoven. Their projects seem to be focussed on life's rituals and typical behaviours. Ryou Jihyun's project shows us techniques used in the past for storing food without the use of a fridge. In a society where energy consumption becomes an entire nation's problem, these age-old methods get new life when applied to a modern day design and thought process.
People increasingly suffer from depression, anxiety and tension because of their inability to deal with death of their loved ones. Wing Lam Kwok takes a closer look at bereavement and the process that surrounds it. By designing a new ritual she hopes to address grief not only in terms of psychology but also as a new task in the humanitarian design field.
And lastly we take a look at a custom most of us have become used to in the morning, that first cup of coffee. Jo Nakamura took an extensive look at the many existing coffee makers in the world, and took the most inspirational ones to further develop them into a brand new ritual of making coffee. Resulting in a unique appliance giving ode to the extraction process which has been around for over 300 years. It's not just about functionality.

Amsterdam Fashion Week 2009, MLY Getting Lost
With her new SS2010 collection, Emily Hermans suggests that getting lost is not necessarily something bad or negative. She got her inspiration from Africa, Egypt especially. Two elements are particularly present in both the collection and the styling; the nomadic and the royal.
The nomadic aspect was beautifully visualized at her Amsterdam Fashion Week catwalk show. Not only in the traditional sense, by women carrying al sorts of things on their head. But also by modern nomads with Mad Max-like ratbikes, who have all their posessions hanging from their vehicles.
The royal aspect is expressed in the collectionâ€™s pronounced colour composition, which includes coral red, cobalt blue and olive green, as well as different shades of gold. Also, jewelry is used as a motive in a number of collection items, by means of colour, design, neck shape and the combination of matte and shiny yarns.

Curating design Talent for Designhuis by Li Edelkoort
For Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Li Edelkoort brought over a part of the Designhuis' Talent show from Eindhoven. Matylda Krzkowski speaks with Li about the exhibition which shows 21 selected designers from 11 different countries, presenting an archaic view of design with an interest in radical primitive materials as earth, cow-dung, wood, cardboard, textiles, bone and hide. They try to escape from a world of over-consumption with unplugged proposals taken from the roots of humanity with humble yet forceful form.

Atelierdorp, a design family
Atelierdorp is located in an abandoned church in the city of Eindhoven. Founded 3 years ago by Otje Bastiaanse, Hilbert Tjalkens, Djim Berger, Rocco Verdult and Vera Teunen with the aim to offer space for designers to grow. Over the years the church has developed into more then just simply a space for designers, it has evolved into a design family where people get a chance to explore their true creative potential.
Currently designers in the church are working new works for Droog Design, Rossana Orlandi, Art Basel, ICFF and the Salone di Mobile in Milan amongst others. People like Bas van Raay, Nacho Carbonell, Julien Carretero, Ontwerpduo, Djim Berger, Joni Neelen, Veronique Lorne, Vera Teunen, Hilbert Tjalkens are proud to call it their working home.

Fashion: MLY, made in Someland
Made in China, made in Holland, made in Italyâ€¦What does it really tell us about a productâ€™s origin? Is a car or a toy or a shirt â€˜made in Chinaâ€™, just because thatâ€™s the country where it left the factory?
For Made in Someland, MLY used modern, ecologically friendly textiles, such as bamboo yarns, while avant-gardistic silhouettes reflect the 19th century travel component which inspired the collection. Far Eastern influences are clearly visible in the ethnic, Asian designs and patterns, while the presentation of the collection has a typical Dutch setting, with Eindhoven skylines, Dutch heath lands and industrial landscapes.

Geoff Mcfetridge: Bend the void
Using mundane icons such as pencils and bears, Geoff Mcfetridge gives a twist to these well known icons. A mixture of humor and irony give his simple looking 2d drawings depth. He made clips for Plaid, Simian, and recently also for The Whitest Boy Alive, and he created film title sequences for The Virgin Suicides and Adaptation.
His work can be seen at his solo exhibition at the Mu Gallery in the Netherlands until August 5th 2007. Geoffs site can be found on http://www.championdontstop.com…
