Colony x Ventura Projects: Dutch Design in NYC

A New York City-based exhibition of process driven Dutch design.
 

NEW YORK, NYVentura Projects presents Dutch Design in NYC in collaboration with Colony, the designers’ co-op. The exhibition will be on view from 12 September - 20 December at 324 Canal St, 2nd Fl, New York, NY, and features process driven work from seven top Dutch designers; Aleksandra Gaca, Aliki van der Kruijs, Alissa+Nienke, Rick Tegelaar, Studio Jeroen Wand, Studio Kalff and Studio Nienke Hoogvliet.

The new work will be shown alongside Colony’s regular roster of independent American designers; exposing the juxtaposition of tangential markets. Highlights from Dutch Designers will include; reactive surface design from studio Alissa+Nienka, 3D printed Colback panels engineered through Rick Tegelaar’s tight control of material and machinery; and a fish skin leather developed out of fishing industry waste by Studio Nienke Hoogvliet. As a whole, the presented collection is the result of experimental research where production methods directly influence form and function of the created objects without obscuring their beauty.

Ventura Projects and Colony are in part able to present this work in NYC due to the immense support by Dutch Culture USA, a program of the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York and Creative Industries Fund NL.

Colony will host a celebratory Media Sneak Peek on opening day, Thursday 12 September, from 10am-3pm followed by an Opening Reception from 6-9pm.
