Bits ’N Pieces to debut at Material ConneXion®
November 4-December 4, 2009
Interactive exhibition to examine dialogue between the analog world and digital technologies transforming design in a post-digital era
Curated by Dutch and Belgian designers Claire Warnier and Dries Verbruggen of UNFOLD, Lucas Maassen, Jan Habraken and Alissia Melka-Teichroew (byAMT), the exhibition will feature work by an international group of designers, architects, computer scientists and material and technology researchers that anticipates the next phase of the digital revolution. Through objects such as furniture, architecture, jewelry, graphic design and products, by the creative minds of Steve Breman, Doug Bucci, Edhv, Willem Derks, Jan Habraken, Ilona Huvenaars, Joris Laarman, Thomas Lommée, Jennifer Leonard, MakerBot, Lucas Maassen, Alissia Melka-Teichroew (byAMT), Dries Verbruggen, THEVERYMANY, Alex Timmer, UNFOLD, Remon van den Eijnden, and Tyche van Eijndhoven, Bits ‘n Pieces will examine how design is both conceived and consumed in the post-digital age. Projects like Lucas Maassen and Dries Verbruggen’s Brain Wave Sofa, whose shape was entirely determined by recording Maassen’s neural activity while thinking of comfort, and MakerBot’s open source 3D printer, which enables individuals to turn out complicated 3D forms quickly and affordably, highlight not only what is possible in the realm of manufacturing and design, but also what is to come.
