I am happy to announce that my weaving Kreuzberg will be exhibited at Dutch Design Week in an exhibition curated by Scholten & Baijings called Design in Full Colour.
Ambassadors Dutch Design Week 2014
The exhibition ‘Design in Full Colour’ is especially compiled for Dutch Design Week. Scholten & Baijings create a platform for young talent. The starting point in the selection of works is the fundamental priority of color. The scope of the design discipline is growing increasingly wider; it is for this reason that the exhibition presents works from the disciplines of design, fashion and applied arts.
‘We think it’s important that the audience can also see what’s happening in the field of design and color on a global scale. We travel a lot because we have clients in various countries such as Japan, America, Denmark and France. We often meet young, enthusiastic designers who make very interesting work. An excellent opportunity to exhibit all this work together,’ says Stefan Scholten.
Each work has its own relationship with color; for example, color may arise from movement or from the applied local materials and techniques. Color is created by painting or occurs through stratification. Color compositions consist of stacked materials and color prints arise through a specific glazing technique.
The exhibition presents 33 different designs in which color plays a crucial role, the same role it also plays in the work by Scholten & Baijings.
By means of simple paper color fields and handmade paint with the deep colors of Farrow & Ball, each design in the exhibition has its individual platform. The entire exhibition shows a color composition that can be read like a color fan.
