centre for design in Rotterdam, presents from September 10th till November
MAYDAY for PLAY-DAY
A lightweight exhibition by INEKEHANS at VIVID Rotterdam.
the past years Ineke Hans has worked a lot on commissions, a.o for Swarovski,
Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Arco, Lensvelt, Chi ha Paura...? and RoyalVKB.
Coming up are projects for Cooper Hewitt Museum New York,
MVRDVarchitecten, the Dutch Ministry of Finance and an exhibition in Paris.
The new work on show at VIVID is a Time Out.
Time Out from commissions.
Time Out from design and the world of design.
Time Out... a step aside.
No demands related to the spirit of times, durability, or producability,
no rules no pre-conditions, but a longing for peace, down-to-earthness,
vernacular and a secret craving for pretentiousless.
Just play... a plea for intuition.
Handicapped by the knowledge of a professional designer used to think
about materials, sizes, concepts, contexts, etc, and with her own backgrounds
and preferences for clear, simple no-nonsense shapes, Ineke Hans intuitively
created a small collection super lightweight furniture, wire-lights and
baskets with title:
Wochenend und Sonnenschein und dann mit dir im Wald allein.
