This exhibition, created by world-renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, explores the way a new generation of designers is experimenting with materials and manufacturing processes.
The past decade has seen a turning point in our relationship with materials, from design to manufacturing, with materials gradually reclaiming their central role in the creative process and beginning to dictate form rather than simply adapt to it.
The exhibition explores the power of materials, which use the sense of touch to convey emotion and energy.
It draws on the so-called “neo-materialist” movement, which reasserts the centuries-old beliefs that materials have their own force and exude an energy that people can genuinely feel.
Two Landlords and two Ladies, plus a magnificent Mansion have created an Exhibition that opens up a dialogue between past and present trends. Like one would do with a flower composition, 16 artists display their pieces in an untouched environment of blissful past beauty developed over the centuries by a generous family who later wished to share their home with everyone.
Therooms host artworks from Front Design, Studio Deform, Paul Heijnen, Niels Hoebers, Tomas Libertiny, Yukiko Nagai, Frederique Morrel, Dirk Van Der Kooij, Maarten Baas, Martin Smith, President Von Pelt, Enrico Marone Cinzano, Massimiliano Locatelli Cls Architetti, Manuela Crotti and Giampiero Milella.
