Discover Eindhoven, The Netherlands in this catalogue of creative happenings

Converting deadwood into artefacts of wonder

October 31st, 2010

Filed under: ART & DESIGN

Dutch Invertuals have taken medieval oak and turned the crumbling former foundations to Eindhoven’s entrance from 600 years ago, into objects that encourage the contemplation of time, a respectful reflection on paper and printing and the notion of allowing an object to assert its own shape, rather than the other way around. Listen to the designers tell their stories in this short film. Fascinating and exciting work taking place in Eindhoven. One of the very best shows here during Dutch Design Week 2010.

Slices of Eindhoven life, 600 years ago
