Salone del Mobile Milano 2016

'Maybe blue would have been better' is the title of our upcoming exhibition together with Studio Jeroen Wand during the Salone del Mobile from April 12-17.

The process of making something is full of dilemmas, questions and decisions. By only viewing the end result the audience often doesn’t come to know what has happened before, what has passed. Doubt, uncertainty and hesitation are crucial moments in a design process. It’s these turning points, when the object is not yet completely there, that are primary and valuable. By putting the process forward, and asking whether it should have been blue, the focus does not solely lie on the moment and object in front of you, but also on what has been and what is still to come. 

Location: Prometeo Gallery, Via Ventura 3, 20134 Milan. Opening times: Daily 10.00 – 20.00. Sun. 17 Apr. till 18.00. Opening evening: Wed. 13 Apr. 20.00 – 22.00. 

This exhibition is supported by Creative Industries Fund NL.

Publication launch and conversation on Gulf inspired design with a curator and two designers from Once Upon DESIGN: New Routes for Arabian Heritage. A one-year research project by Banafsajeel on Reinventing Heritage culminated in a cutting edge contemporary design exhibition produced by 1971 Design Space featuring seven installations that draw inspiration from intangible heritage of the Arabian Peninsula, taken in contemporary design directions.

Work in progress

A few days before the opening of the exhibition Once Upon Design: New Routes for Arabian Heritage we are in Sharjah (UAE) to help finishing our outdoor interactive installation Courtyard Culture. The installation has been locally produced and we are Design Space 1971 and all the people involved very thankful for making this happen! Opening is Thursday March 3 at 7:00 PM. 

Once upon design, new routes for Arabian heritage

Studio Mieke Meijer participates in an exhibition at 1971 Design Space, Sharja (UAE) which demonstrates ways in which contemporary design is influenced by old practices native to the Arabian Peninsula or carried over by migrant communities, such as woodwork and ceramics. Eight installations blend past and future and merge time with space; they reflect collaborations across various design disciplines that respond in diverse and imaginative ways to traditional forms of making. Architecture is recontextualised or deconstructed, Nabati poetry is transformed, and nostalgic traditions and rituals such as incense and majlis gatherings are methodically enhanced or playfully subverted. Opening: Wednesday 3 March, 2016, 7:00 p.m. Location: 1971 - Design Space, The Flag Island, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

New and improved website

Studio Mieke Meijer has launched  her new website, with improved functionality, design, and navigation. Studio Mieke Meijer offers unique solutions to practical interior design challenges. In close collaboration with architects, interior designers and private clients, she realises functional and spatial interventions renowned for their autonomous character. The works of the studio allow the user to continuously re-define the functionalities of the object. The designs do not regulate a singular use. Spaces and volumes thus become elements with which the user can create his/her own work or living environment. 

he new website features an improved homepage design, cleaner layout of page content, and an intuitive and consistent site-wide navigation system. It is also accessible through a wider range of web browsers and devices, including mobiles and tablets.

Spatial fragments in uncharted materiality

During the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Studio Mieke Meijer and Studio Jeroen Wand presented their works together in a beautiful space at Ventura Lambrate. The studios share the same interest for material, technology and construction, however they use disparate methodologies. Their works, therefore, are both complementary and opposite. The exhibition was supported by Creative Industries Fund NL. We would like to thank everyone for visiting us!
