Dutch Design Week 07 | Design Inside Out | Eindhoven 20 - 28 October 2007

Black Wool Jo Meesters During Dutch Design Week 2007, Design inside out shows that the combination of design and technology has in the Eindhoven region led to the innovation of textile. Design Inside Out is the latest edition of Made in Brainport. The Made in Brainport exhibitions are characterized by innovative products from the Eindhoven region that are successful blends of design and technology. Since 2005, various editions of Made in Brainport exhibitions have travelled the world. After the 2006 edition Design Moves People, Design Inside Out breaks new ground.

Regional textile companies know from experience how valuable the implementation of design can be in the creation of an exclusive product range. In this way, they can distinguish themselves successfully from mass produced fabrics from the Far East. Design inside out presents a glimpse of the present and the future of the manufacturing companies Vlisco, Raymakers, Carpet Sign, and EE Labels, which are all excellent examples of this promising development.  

Naturally, much attention is also paid to the work of established designers from Brainport. On view are the felt vase by Yksi Ontwerpers, textile work by Kiki van Eijk, and Black Wool by Jo Meesters, all of them designers who won international acclaim at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in April this year. Sandra Dijkstra exhibits work that she made in conjunction with local artisans on Bali within the framework of the project Dutch Design in Development.
