Open Ended by Lidewij Edelkoort

20 Jun. 2015 — 05 Feb. 2016

Lidewij Edelkoort will exhibit a selection from her personal art and design collection. An overview of dutch and international autonomous design from 1995 to 2015.

“Composed of work from the most important designers working round the turn of the century, many of them with links to the Netherlands, the collection shows how attitudes to design have changed and are coming of age. The evolution of design as an autonomous discipline is a focus point. The work of a number of local heroes is on display, alongside world-renowned talents, celebrating the creative spirit of the city of Eindhoven and representing a feather in the cap of education.”
