Plusdesign gallery presents “Weaving” Traditions, a solo exhibition by the Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk, made in collaboration with gallery Secondome of Rome, Nodus in Milan and Bernhardt Design in North Carolina. The exhibition opens February 1 and runs until March 31 in Via Ventura 6 (Milan, Italy).
“Weaving” Traditions weaves the scenery of Kiki’s world - through the times and places that have influenced her work, and among the beautiful objects which are part of her craftsmanship.
The exhibition will show previews of Van Eijk's tapestries, called Wallhangings; the Savage Flowers carpet especially designed for Nodus; and the Workshop sofa created for the US company Bernhardt Design, made in collaboration with Joost van Bleiswijk.
Also on show will be a collection of seven furniture-sculptures called Cut & Paste, designed for Secondome gallery, and a selection of the ceramics that have made her style unique through the years.
