Building up for the exhibition called ‘The Vincent Affair’ that will open next week at the historic location Nune Ville. Nune Ville used the be the home to Margot Begemann. The woman Vincent Van Gogh was in a relation with during his time in Nuenen.
The affair has played an important role in the life of Vincent Van Gogh. And now that the house is empty it offers a perfect venue for this exhibition. After doing research into the history of this story we discovered that many issues Vincent was struggling with are still very relevant today. There are many shows on his Art and life so his personality is what this exhibition is about. Come take a look.

In relation to Glow, an art event in light technology, we have been invited to give an inspiring talk on this event in relation to the urban development of the city and about parallels with other regions with a strong focus on technology. Our recent visit to Boston, Cambridge and Somerville came in really handy. A nice opportunity to explain some of the plans we have for the future as well.

Last week we went to Milan to pave the way for the new show of Dutch Invertuals. We checked out several spaces in the area as possible extra venues during the Salone de Mobile. Next to that we had various meetings with interesting people. It’s nice to extend our network in Milan. Of course we could find some time to visit the exhibitions at La Triennale. Alway worth paying a visit. This time it had a good show on design in years of crisis.

We paid a little visit to the workshop of SIEMei at CHV Noordkade. A workshop that is run by retired works men of the former CHV company. They are applying their skills to one of our signing objects for CHV Noordkade.

Sometimes when working on projects its good to go out for inspiration. Like in this case, browsing through the woods for material. This will somehow find it’s way into one of our new projects.

DI Talks #01
Because its always useful to expand our knowledge on topics we don’t know much about Dutch Invertuals started a series of self educational lectures. the first DI Talk was about Luminescent Solar Concentrators. A material that is being researched and developed at the Technical University of Eindhoven. Coming straight from the lab it offers a range of uncharted possibilities for application in design.

Lose some weight
After years of loyal service we have decided to part with a large amount of our books and magazines. They were just sitting there on the shelves watching time fly by and collecting dust by the miles. So we donated them to the next generation to come. A post on the Design Academy student network set off a frenzy. Now we have design students dropping by to make their pick for the last couple of days. Feels good to lose some weight like that.
