OBJECT is thé place where the cutting edge between design, crafts, fashion, architecture and art becomes evident and it is a must-see for collectors, professionals and other design-minded people.

Participants can only enter by invitation since OBJECT is a curated fair, which means designers are carefully selected to keep the right balance between well-known names and upcoming talents, different design disciplines and materials, applied design and more autonomous installations.

De hoopvolle naam: Wall of Future begint inmiddels ingeburgerd te raken in de lijst van Leidse tradities.
In de maand november biedt Galerie Zône voor de derde keer een podium aan pas afgestudeerde talenten: schoenontwerpers, keramisten, meubelmakers en textielkunstenaars van verschillende academies. In deze speciale tentoonstelling laten zij hun topstukken zien. Misschien wel de eerste stap naar succes. Wellicht komen de bezoekers van Zône hier een kunstenaar op het spoor die over een paar jaar een grote naam is geworden!

Wat kan het publiek verwachten? Bijzondere exorbitante, maar toch draagbare schoenen van de Dutch Shoe Academy Utrecht. Aan de wand textielwerk van de Koninklijke Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Den Haag; meubels van het Hout- en Meubileringscollege Amsterdam/Rotterdam en verrassende keramische objecten van de Nederlandse Keramiekopleiding Gouda.
Hun werk past goed in galerie Zône.

Bij deze expositie wordt het thema licht vanuit verschillende invalshoeken benaderd. De kunstenaars vertalen hun perspectieven o.a. via videoprojectie, fotografie, handgeweven textiel en spiegels. De kunstwerken bieden een doorgang naar een andere wereld, bevragen de (collectieve) waarneming, onderzoeken kleur en vlak op speelse wijze, tonen de schoonheid van de natuur en de symbolische waarde van licht. Kom licht opnieuw ervaren bij galerie Pouloeuff.

The Haagse Kunstkring granted 13 alumni of the KABK complete freedom to realise this project.

“Through our own choice in the space of the Haagse Kunstkring, we show artworks with our own perspective, to design the space in an innovative way.

These disciplines will start an interaction: Textile & Fashion, Fine Arts, Interior Architecture and Furniture Design, Photography, ArtScience and Graphic Design.

This way we continue a tradition which the Haagse Kunstkring started in 1891 from founder Théophile de Bock’s vision on diversity in art.”

Together with partner Dutch Design Foundation, Crafts Council Nederland has been putting the spotlight on making for years. With the inspiring group exhibition HOW&WOW from 19 until 27 October 2019 in VEEM at Strijp-S, we presented the importance of crafts.

From wood carving to polyurethane moulding and from young maker to seasoned craftsman; HOW&WOW presented all dimensions of making. Crafts Council Nederland is the platform and expertise center that strengthens, innovates and broadens the creative craft, both in the Netherlands and internationally. We ensure a reevaluation of crafts and make them future-proof. We do this together with a large community of maker-designers, craft professionals, museums, workplaces, companies, the government and education.

During Dutch Design Week 2019 we highlighted the meaning and power of making on the basis of five current themes:
– Innovation from tradition
– New materials and new applications of techniques
– Sustainable materials and production processes
– New future heritage & cultural identity
– Social innovation
