Dutch Design Week 2016

Friday December 9th, 2016

This Dutch Design Week I am part of #springtij; a group of five young designers who bound their skills especially for the Dutch Design Week 2016. We present the Magic Of Craft. During our expo we will all reveal a part of the creation process of our work, a sneak peek into our world.

The Monstera family is traveling the world since it saw the light of day. This year at the Dutch Design Week you can discover the story of how the Monstera planters are brought to life. You can also meet the third member: the Monstera Crescens. The Monstera will be exhibited together with the smaller Carnivora planters, who are eager to be taken away.

Carnivora in Londen and Venice

Wednesday May 18th, 2016

Coming soon to London and Venice: the work of designer Tim van de Weerd whose playful plant pot family, Carnivora will be exhibited during the Architecture Biënnale in Venice. The trend setting London Mint Shop will also show the Carnivora as one of the new season design highlights during the spring exhibition, Spring Forms. The exceptional design of the Carnivora makes one think of a live animal, which lives in a symbiotic state with the plant it holds.

Tim van de Weerd is enjoying success. During the biannual Architecture Biënnale in Venice, his work, Carnivora will be exhibited at the renowned design event, Design.ve, and for the second year running, his work will be shown in the London Mint Shop. His Monstera series was recognized by the internationally renowned trend forecaster, Lidewij Edelkoort, who selected Tim’s eccentric plant pots for the Designing Lightness exhibition. Tim’s work keeps company with the exclusive likes of watch brand Rado, whose newest collection was introduced by Designing Lightness in 2016.

Ceramics in Venice
The small, frolicksome Carnivora pots combine a playful energy with classical elegance, each piece unique with their individually formed thin porcelain feet. The curators of Veniceartfactory, who also organized exhibitions during the Biënnale Venice 2015, were taken with these characteristic pieces and invited Tim van de Weerd to show his plant pot family at the first edition of Design.ve. This event heralds the most groundbreaking design, with a focus this year on wood, glass and ceramics. A select group of designs will be shown at various locations in Venice, the Carnivora being part of the group show in Palazo Loredan, the Venetian Institute of Science, Literature and Art.

Hip in London

Each year the London Mint Shop selects the best work from various design trade shows to present at their spring exhibition. During the Dutch Design Week 2014, Tim van de Weerd’s large, exalted Monstera plant pots were selected. The following year, the smaller, sprightly Carnivora pots catched their eye at the Dutch Design Week and were selected for their exhibition in 2015. The Mint Shop is renowned for having a keen eye for trends, details and aesthetics. It is no wonder, therefore, that Tim van de Weerd, whose work breathes natural elegance and sports surprising details, has been selected once again.

The exposition Spring Forms in the London Mint Shop (2 North Terrace, Alexander Square, London SW3 2BA) runs from May 12th to June 10th, 2016. For more information, see www.mintshop.co.uk.

Design.ve runs from May 25th to June 26th, 2016. Tims’ work can be seen at the Palazo Loredan – Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, San Marco 2945, 30124 Venice. For more information, see www.facebook.com/Design.VE, www.instagrame.com/design.ve and www.designve.org.

Designing Lightness by Lidewij Edelkoort

Sunday March 20th, 2016

March 17 – 21, 2016
Graf & Schelbe Gallery, Basel

Monstera Magnifica is part of ‘Designing Lightness’, an exhibition curated by Lidewij Edelkoort for Rado,  the Swiss producer of luxurious timepieces.

“The contemporary design scene is on a quest for lightness. From the streamlining of ceramics to the use of transparencies or the injection of air, objects are set afloat and embedded with an ethereal energy that corresponds to our desire for a lighter existence. Material is the message and mindfulness is the movement.

Rado has invited world‐renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort to curate a design exhibition that illustrates this tendency. By bringing together innovative works by international designers, Edelkoort and her team will show how a “weightless” socio‐cultural philosophy is being previewed in design today.”
