Designer Hella Jongerius has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary.
She has her own design company Jongeriuslab in Rotterdam. Along her own projects she has done projects for clients such as Droog Design, Vitra, Ikea and Royal Tichelaar Makkum.
Visiting the exhibition was good chance to see her projects specially the materials she works with, rather than just looking at pictures in internet. Since studying in Willem de Kooning Academy, I have spent probably most of my time in the ceramics department, and Hella Jongerius designs represents quality and playfulness that is to my taste.
As the last picture shows (from Twitter), There were about 200 coloured vases in the circle and in the beginning of the year visitor got a fit and collapsed on to the vases. Huh!
