On view in Eindhoven from 22–30 October, the latest edition of Dutch Invertuals was a success for curator Wendy Plomp and the 13 designers in the exhibition. A perennial highlight of Dutch Design Week for seven years running, the exhibition has consistently offered a thought-provoking and visually stimulating collection of new projects.

For “Power Play“, Plomp invited the best and brightest Dutch designers to investigate the “future energy landscape”. Broadly addressing efficiency and self-sufficiency, the timely brief yielded several high- and low-tech scenarios. From sound harvesters by Emilie Pallard and Niels Heymans to Hongjie Yang’s experimental fossil materials, the exhibition literally and figuratively captures the “energy” of Dutch design.

Full list of participating designers: Bastiaan de Nennie, Bram Vanderbeke, Carlo Lorenzetti, Daniel de Bruin, Edhv, Emilie Pallard & Niels Heymans, Emma Wessel & Tijs Gilde, Hongjie Yang, Michael Schoner, Milou Voorwinden, Roos Meerman, Tijmen Smeulders, and Wendy Andreu.

Berlin Art Glass debuted their new lighting brand ANALOG in Alcova Sassetti last Milan Design Week. The first series of this brand is called On Movement and Material and is created in collaboration with Philip Weber, the new Artistic Director of this cultural institution. He took the time to sit down with TLmag and talk about the lighting brand and his new position.

Using various textile techniques like knitting, embroidery and tufting, Paris-based textile artist Manon Daviet transposes her drawings into tapestries, creating what she calls “volume paintings”. Here, she talks TLmag through her multidisciplinary practice, finding inspiration in comic books and her embracing of mysticism in nature.
