EINDHOVEN AVANT-GARDE is an occasional collective founded by designers Tessa Koot and Niek van der Heijden and photographer Lisa Klappe.
With an individual viewpoint regarding their own work and design in general, the three members of ’Eindhoven Avant-Garde’ feel free to mix and sample each other’s concepts and ideas.
‘WE ARE WELCOME’ is an open invitation for opposites to attract:
Neo-kitch vs Classical, Dark vs Light, Geometrical shapes vs Organic forms, New vs Old and more……..
Recent works, photographs and handpicked design from featured designers, form the centre of a guided exhibition full of old fashioned craftmanship; headstrong and hands-on design.
Exclusively on show during Milan Design Week, with an official opening on Wednesday 10th of April
In a domestic setting full of contradicting treasures, new works are presented: furniture with a tropical slant by Tessa Koot, hands-on design for little and big boys by Niek van der Heijden, Darling Photographs by Lisa Klappe and curated works from guest designers: Akko Goldenbelt, Ben Hohmann, Michiel Martens & Roel de Boer, Frans Meijer, Dennis Parren, Etienne Reijnders, Karmen Saat, Grietje Schepers Tomm Velthuis and Erwin Zwiers.
