NEW ICONS - Rietveld now

31 May. 2017 — 09 Oct. 2017

Who are the design innovators in 2017? If Rietveld would still be alive, what would he make now? Would he be called Maarten Baas? Jelle Mastenbroek, Jella Lena van Eck, or different? We are interested to hear your thoughts!

In 2017, the Netherlands celebrates 100 years De Stijl. With a large exhibition, Kazerne joins the theme year Mondriaan to Dutch Design. The podium for design surpasses the external characteristics of De Stijl, like the straight lines and primary colours. 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.
