Lonneke Gordijn has talked at TED X Amsterdam 30 - Nov. The theme of the TED talk was Sci-Fi vs Technology. Lonneke talked about our work and what our meaning can be as artists in a fast changing industrial world searching for emotional values. The title of the TED talk was: Fragile Future ... Design for dreamers.
We are verry proud to announce that we won the prestigious Moet-Hennessy-PAD London prize while presenting our new Fragile Future Concrete Chandelier at PAD London presented by Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
A Jury of 20 high profile design specialists, including Jasper Conran, Christopher Wilk, Janice Blackburn, Jane Withers and Tom Dixon, have selected our work as the best of PAD. This means that our Fragile Future Concrete Chandelier will be part of the permanent V&A Museum collection.
We are invited by the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) to create an installation for the 2010 summer exhibition Dead or Alive in there recently renewed museum in New York.
This timely and provocative exhibition offers commentaries on such issues as our evolving and often contentious relationships with nature. The artists selected for Dead or Alive create new works from parts of flora and fauna that were once living. Amongst Damien Hirst, Jochem Hendricks and Nick Cave, Studio Drift will present a big architectural installation called Fragile Future.
