⇒ Hardcore Exhibition
HARCORE is a new exhibition by Core Studio. After the success of last year’s POPCORE exhibit, they’re embarking on a new project. The vision of this exhibition is to bring us down to reality opposite last year’s theme of Popcore which was all about having a playful and naive approach. The HARDCORE exhibition orbits around elemental materials, substances that create a world which is ever-lasting.
⇒ ABN Amro Hotspot: Petit Pli
Petit Pli provides the most technologically advanced children’s clothing in the market. Petit Pli‘s versatile waterproof shells are pleated in a way that can grow bi-directionally to perfectly fit a wide range of sizes. The continuous size adjustment is a new, efficient way of approaching garment design.
⇒ ABN Amro Hotspot: Collect
COLLECT is a brand new fashion concept, imagined by designers Karin Vlug and Lisa Konno. Together, the designers created ever-changing clothing, easy to wear. A simple shirt can be morphed into a dress or a jumpsuit, using a very simple DIY system. It allows you to collect as many parts as you wish, such as different sleeves and collars, and much more.
⇒ When Digital Gets Physical
This piece is a scaled visualization of the concept of digital material and aims to translate its theoretical principles to the physical world. Inspired by crystal atom structures, the chair is composed of aluminum tetrahedrons and spheres, which – when tightened by inner cables – form a feather-weighted octet truss lattice. When the tension is relieved, the shape dissipates and the material returns to its original state.
⇒ The Academie Artemis Graduates 2017
Alumni Artemis will provide a visual insight into the most important developments of today’s society at Dutch Design Week 2017. They will show how it is translated into innovative and applicable solutions for product, space and communication issues.
⇒ L.E.A.V. Project
Leading the discussion on new borders for lightweight structural systems of the future, this project was imagined and built as a hypothetical aerial vehicle. Its design was inspired by the suggestive drawings of H. Miyazaki. It presents a floating installation with 1:1 scale details of the object, in addition, a process of experimentation was dissected, widening the spectrum of future structural wonders.
