New expo: The Circle
In the exhibition The Circle, the Dutch Invertuals collective focuses on one of the most iconic shapes in our universe. Over 25 leading designers, including Nina van Bart, Satomi Minoshima, Baiba Soma, Bram Vanderbeke, Nel Verbeke and Jeroen Wand (both up-and-coming and established talent), show their personal vision on the mother of all forms. In 2019, The Circle was already on show during Salone del Mobile in Milan and the DutchDesign Week in Eindhoven. Complimented with new works, the exhibition is now on show for a longer period of time than a festival week in Home of Design Kazerne, right at the heart of design city Eindhoven.
About The Circle
“In times of division and inequity, the circle stands as an emblem of co-operation and connectivity. We need to go back to the origin to find out what is fundamental in life. Interpreting the circle pushes each Invertuals to identify what is essential to them.” -says curator Wendy Plomp. She asked the designers to redesign the circle.
The personal visions on the mother of all forms show a rich diversity of autonomous design; from conceptual to practical designs and from philosophical to mathematical. The exhibition design by Daphna Laurens also uses the shape as a basis. Visitors can level with the work from a round podium. Together with the monumental curtains, this walkable circle sheds light on the industrial exhibition space of Kazerne.
