Thanks to Hazel Terry for posting this video of Piet Hein Eek this morning. The ethos behind the company is very inspiring. Oriel Myrddin Gallery will be showing an exhibition of Dutch design in September curated by Pembrokeshire's Freshwest Design - Piet Hein Eek is not part of the show, but the show will feature designers influenced by the prestigious Eindhoven Design Academy including Maartin Baas, Riener Bosch, Formafantasma, Daphna Isaacs, Chris Kabel, Digna Kosse, Christien Meindertsma, Mieke Meijer, Berjan Pot, Tejo Remy (TBC), Frederik Roije, Peter van der Jagt, Nathan Wierink.
The Dutch Collection is particular: its emphasis is creative, questioning, light and holistic. A spirit of research and adventure has meant that selection, curation and delivery have transmogrified into a Freshwest/Netherlands road trip. Marcus Beck and Simon Macro (Freshwest Design) and Joby Barnard (photography/design) venture to Holland in a van to meet with designers on a whistle-stop ‘select and collect’ tour from some of the best design studios in The Netherlands.
