DDW 2017 - NEW STUDIO

Kiki van Eijk for the TextielMuseum - Tilburg

"Orchis & Hydrangea" are two new rugs designed for Nodus that will be showcased in the exhibition Earth Matters, curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano, in collaboration with the TextielMuseum.

By using the four themes, 'Understanding Origins', 'Collecting  Ingredients', 'Reinventing Materials and 'Sustaining Production', the exhibition Earth Matters, gives a better understanding of sustainability in design and the importance of material studies. All projects encourage people to think about the source of the materials used and the creation process, not only through innovation, but even more by the re-evaluation of crafts and locally produced products

"Orchis & Hydrangea" are about a pure sense of beauty, and gift of nature that often surprises you in the smallest ways.

Kiki van Eijk for Chamber Gallery -New York

"I'm proud to be a cosmopolitan" will be showcased in the exhibition Collection #3, titled Room With Its Own Rules, curated by Matylda Krzykowsk for Chamber Gallery.


The show features newly commissioned, one-of a-kind and limited edition work made exclusively by women. It ties together the many studio visits and conversations that Krzykowski conducted, at which she was able to encounter an encouraging range of strong women that define their own principles for life and work.  


"I'm proud to be a cosmopolitan" is a flag that reinvents universal identity within one symbol. It serves as a new corporate identity for the world and aims to bring us all together under a bright, positive and uncoloured symbol that does not include national separations.

The piece was designed in 2003, and has never felt so contemporary.

KIKI VAN EIJK AT DESIGN MIAMI/BASEL WITH NILUFAR GALLERY AND PRINT PARTNER EXPOSIZE

Kiki is delighted to announce her presentation of two collections at Design Miami/Basel with Nilufar Gallery. The collections, Physical Interaction and Civilized Primitives, will be presented in a large scale installation within Design at Large.

Nina Yashar, founder and owner of Nilufar Gallery, came up with the fabulous idea to create a large scale tent that references the pieces' connection to the outdoors.

Using Bedouin style tents for design inspiration and modern tent systems for construction context, Kiki worked with Exposize to bring the idea to life. With their extensive expertize in large format printing, Exposize was able to bring to life Kiki's inspirations behind the collections, and further show her creative practice in a new and exciting way.

 

"These two collections represent my latest inspirations - how humans interact with the natural world and how designers have a responsibility to bring this relationship to design," says Kiki. Both projects are combining high tech and low tech through creativity and craft. "I am thrilled to bring these works to Basel with Nilufar as a part of their show at Design Miami/."

Floating Frames Mantel Clock at Design Oracles

La Gaîté lyrique and the Centre national des arts plastiques (National center for visual arts- CNAP) have joined forces to invite renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort to take a unique and original look at the CNAP's design and decorative arts collection in a new exhibition.


"Design can be seen as an oracle that reveals our times. It can be ultra-light when we?re travelling easy, plump when we need protection, conventional to provide reassurance, intimate to better cuddle us. It is meditative to appease us, figurative to delight us, absurd to challenge us and natural so that we form attachments. It can also become virtual so as to transport us."  Lidewij Edelkoort, exhibition curator


10 THEMES, 10 NARRATIVES TO TELL THE STORY OF THESE ORACULOUS OBJECTS!


Each story communicates a lifestyle and a desire for self-expression:

SIMPLE - HUMBLE - CURIOUS - INFLATED - ABSTRACT - NAÏVE - NOMADIC - MUTANT - ORGANIC - ARCHAIC

Lecture at University of Michigan 'The Road To Wonderland'

Kiki will take part in the Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series at the University of Michigan School of Art & Design.


Established with the generous support of alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Speaker Series brings respected innovators from a broad spectrum of fields to the School to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger University and Ann Arbor communities.


Kiki's lecture will take place on the 5th of Februari with the title 'The Road To Wonderland' in which she gives an inside look in the way she works and thinks and tells about her design process.

"Very often I feel as if I'm Alice in Wonderland. Something wonderful attracts my attention, activates my curiosity and it leads to a new adventure, a new project.

It's as if I jump after the white rabbit in a tunnel without asking myself how to get out again. I'll see how it ends... I act without fear and look at each new project as an exotic journey."


The program will start on the 5th of Februari  at 5:10 pm at the historic  Michigan Theater, located at 603 E. Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor, and are free of charge and open to the public.

Gathering - From Domestic Craft to Contemporary Process

Internationally renowned trend-forecaster and curator Li Edelkoort returns to Design Museum Holon with the new exhibition. In a world first, GATHERING will feature a survey of the ground-breaking 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE collection by the legendary Japanese designer.

Since the late 1990s we have witnessed a revival of traditional domestic crafts in response to the information revolution. Disdain for a boring global market coupled
with a fear of the virtualization of society has inspired designers and artists to create work that emphasizes the humanization of the making process and the contextualization of a more responsible lifestyle. 

Kiki joins this exhibition with her piece: Quilt Stool.

Central Square North Sea Jazz 11|12|13 July 2014

The famous Dutch North Sea Jazz festival commissioned Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eijk to re-design their 'central square'.

The square, situated in the center of the Ahoy complex in Rotterdam, forms the heart of the festival. A place where visitors can eat, have a drink or wander around the Jazz related shops.

Kiki and Joost got inspired by the big industrial constructions of Rotterdam's port and created a gigantic extra level in the existing 2000 square meter space.

As an addition to the industrial style, there's a big pergola floating above the elevated floor, resulting in a cozy garden-like atmosphere. Graphic lampshades capture the jazz feeling and create the recognizable Joost and Kiki feel to the central square. With a giant chandelier, room dividers, special lamp structures and a floor plan that forms a pixelated graphic, the space has been transformed into a pleasant place to be.

The structure of the square is executed in collaboration with stage design company Look-n-Feel. The design of this space is the first step to a complete metamorphosis, which will find its completion in the upcoming years.

Tudor Furniture for Moooi, Salone del Mobile

Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk combined their strengths in designing a cupboard, low cabinet and buffet. Inspired by the harmonious constructions and ornamental decorations of the Tudor houses.


Kiki expresses her love for curiosities by producing an embellishing pattern of sinuous foliage, woven in refined textiles. The details of her design are so endearing that the duo decides to frame them like precious canvases enclosed in a solid structure, which was carefully taken care of by Joost. This resulted in the Tudor furniture collection.


Moooi and Kiki and Joost, welcome you to enjoy and gather inspiration at their presentation during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.

The Future is Handmade - Kalmar Konstmuseum, Sweden

The Floating Frames Table Shade is shown in the exhibition 'The Future is Handmade', a design exhibition which started at the Kalmar Museum of Art in Sweden. 


After 70 years in exile craft is back in the design world. Over the past five years, a number of young designers across Europe have started to work by hand again. Instead of impersonal, mass-produced products they design unique objects with a higher degree of authenticity. All very much in tune with the zeitgeist of today's society where the consumers are far more individualistic than in the 1900s .

The movement is originally from Holland who has been the leading design nation since the late 1900s. This applies to both product design, fashion and graphic design. The exhibition 'The Future is Handmade' captures this interesting paradigm shift and seeking explanation on why it's happening right now.

The exhibition builds on the 70's when radical designers such as Erik Hoglund was inspired by folk craft when he designed furniture. In the 90's a number of young designers such as MMParis, Marcel Wanders and Sandra Backlund began experimenting with crafts on a serious level.

Today craft is one of the most important driving forces in the design world, and many of the most prominent, young designers refer in different ways to a traditional craft. Like for example, Anders Jacobsen, Ugly Cute, Tobias Alm, Emelie Ahlner, Kiki Van Eijck, All the Way to Paris and others.

Art House Colloredo-Mansfeldský palác


Designblok opens the new conceptual space entitled Art House. It will be designated for non-commercial presentations of top Czech and foreign designers from the field of art design. 


Visitors will have the opportunity to see the duo of designers Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk from the Dutch city of Eindhoven. Their exhibition represents a combination of textiles and textures made by Kiki with expressive technicist structures made by Joost. 


Designblok Prague - Design and Fashion Week celebrates 15 years of existence this year. 

Designblok - design and fashion week - celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2013. Its first year took place in autumn 1999; the first participants included Vitra, Konsepti, BeldaFactory, and Klára Nademlýnská. These names show that the event focused not only on top product design, but also jewelry and fashion. Even though the number of exhibitors has increased from 14 to more than 200 over the past 15 years and the number of visitors has increased from hundreds to thousands (1,000 visitors in 1999 and 42,000 visitors in 2012), the essentials of Designblok have remained the same: an emphasis put on selectiveness and the quality of objects on display, international marketing and commercial impact, a permanent effort made to link creative figures with production and sale, plus the support of young talents and schools.

Woven Cabinet at Inside Design Amsterdam

Woven Cabinet will be show during Inside Design Amsterdam

A cabinet constructed in oak wood with a reference to timber framing as seen in architecture.

Joost van Bleiswijk designed the frame. The space in between the framing is closed with textiles designed by Kiki.

 

It's a design for Ee labels which is famous for its labels as you find in your own clothing. It is challenging to explore the boundaries of a technique for such small items in order to experiment on a bigger scale with a different function.

Exhibition 'Eyes on Nature: wall hangings'

A new collection of four wall hangings 'Memories of a Panorama', designed by Kiki van Eijk,  is currently shown in the exhibition 'Eyes on Nature' in the TextielMuseum in Tilburg. 

Wall hangings are back in a big way. Designers and artists have rediscovered a passion for these interior textiles. With Eyes on Nature: wall hangings, the TextielMuseum illustrates the evolution of Dutch wall hangings in the past 50 years. The exhibition ranges from realistic and abstract works, to rough and narrative modern pieces. The focus is on the depiction of nature.

'Memories of a Panorama' is executed by TextielMuseum/TextielLab Tilburg.

The 4 Panorama's are based on the Dutch landscapes, with a dreamy colorful touch. The center of the graphic image on each tapestry is a tree, woven from gold thread. Kiki sees the tree as the jewel of the panorama.

Currently Kiki is very intrigued by panorama's. 'For me the beauty of a natural setting is that one's able to look far away. I myself have an increasing need for space around me and the idea that you can walk through nature, being overwhelmed by it.' Graphically it shows the different facets and qualities of nature in perspective. These are all views from Kiki's memories. The tapestries exist out of different textures and colors, as can be recognized in the Dutch landscapes.
