Who are the design innovators in 2017? If Rietveld would still be alive, what would he make now? Would he be called Maarten Baas? Dave Hakkens, Jalila Essaïdi, Jella Lena van Eck, or someone else?
In 2017, the Netherlands celebrates 100 years art movement De Stijl. With a large exhibition, Kazerne joins the theme year Mondriaan to Dutch Design. The interest of the podium for design surpasses the straight lines and primary colours of De Stijl. The focus is on content: the blending between form and function, and the search for a universal language to interprete the contemporary society. Together with the designers and the audience, Kazerne tries to pierce through the zeitgeist, and to predict which designers will survive the ravages of time.
