heimatdesign: just show the best of the best

show me another ‘art meets design’ exhibition and I gonna shoot myself ;-). 2 weeks ago, when I visited the designers fair at the rhein triadem in cologne, an event during the furniture fair imm, I came across one of this events.

dortmund-based heimatdesign presented ‘surface’, an exposition of former design academy eindhoven students. It was a likeable compilation of ‘already seen’ work. most of them old graduation projects. all of them dutch – the best in art and design Interface. In my opinion the pick of the bunch at this event. but I think it’s a pity that a german collective called heimatdesign, which literally means ‘homedesign’, doesn’t present work of german designers. so, get out, german concept designers. we want you!
