Dutch Invertuals in Milan
Newly gained knowledge allows us to venture deeper into the future. We create new tools, speak a new language and formulate new aesthetics. We interpret nature, re-think our traditions and shape our identity.
After gaining so much knowledge and freedom to design our own individuality, and even our own society, it is time to re-discover what can truly bring us happiness. It has become so easy to take our freedom and luxury for granted while the world, as we know it, is in desperate need of balance. Step by step we are figuring out how to bring knowledge to good use. This will eventually lead to a Happy Future.
“The mission of Dutch Invertuals is to show and challenge the value of knowledge and beauty.” Wendy Plomp – Curator
This editions invertuals are: Brit van Nerven & Sabine Marcelis, Daphna Laurens, Edhv, Jeroen Wand, Jetske Visser, Jólan van der Wiel, OS Δ OOS, Raw Color, Roos Gomperts, Studio Mieke Meijer, Thomas Vailly & Laura Lynn Jansen
Dutch Invertuals is a collective of individual designers who are expanding the limits of their profession. Designers with different backgrounds, but with one thing in common: experiment is principal.

The build up
Like every year Dutch Invertuals is present again at the Salone Del Mobile. Even in times where budgets are strongly under pressure. It proves dedication, creativity and teamwork will prevail. It feels good to recycle the material from the show of 2012. And what really helps is this marvelous space being run by cool people in the coolest part of Milan. Spazio O’ in the neighbourhood Isola. www.on-o.org

Dutch Invertuals lookbook
If you happen to be at the Dutch Invertuals show in Milan. Ask for the Lookbook. It’s a vast and brutal overview of five years blood, sweat, tears and tons of awesomeness. Amazing what can be achieved in such a short time. The lookbook serves as a prelude to the publishing of a Dutch Invertuals book later this year.

We had the honour to receive a group of international guests at our Edhv studio. The group consisted of six selected artists, social designers and engineers from Guatemala, Kenia, Indonesia and Nicaragua. In their daily practice, all of them strongly focus on experiment, research and social innovation. They will return to Eindhoven for a residency in September and October.

A nice article about the concept we have worked on for Belvedair. Farm Food & Drinks represents the Brabant feeling and has the absolute best coffee around the airport. So next time you fly, have a break at one of their bars.

Test set up
As we are working on lettering for a monumental building, one can’t be to sure to get the best results. The company that does the production made a test set up to judge the materials, lights, measurements and color. We can’t wait to see it up there.
