A Fresh Outlook: Popcore Exhibition

Clockwise L-R: Teeny Tiny, Grid Mirrors, One stool, Idaho, Acoustic Landscapes

The Popcore exhibition, which took place in Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week 2016, aimed to showcase the multidisciplinary interests and talents of young designers – a concept for millennials, by millennials.

Teeny Tiny: The quirky Teeny Tiny sportswear collection by design duo AnoukxVera features pink and blue cartoon-like prints of kneecaps, hairy legs and stripes. Aiming to revolutionise the fashion industry, the garments are manufactured on-demand to avoid unsold stock and wasted materials.

Grid Mirrors: A set of three mirrors by Hans van Sinderen are set into different tray and bowl bases featuring a black and white grid pattern. When the objects are stacked on top of each other, the warped reflections of the gridded pattern create the optical illusion of additional three-dimensional surfaces.

Idaho: Inspired by images of Google Earth, German designer Tanita Klein created a wooden furniture system consisting of semi-circle nesting tables and floor tiles that function as tracks. The ball-shaped leg ends slide along the grooves in the wooden tiles to create different configurations with the tables.

Acoustic Landscapes: Designer Robin Maas uses different weaving techniques and thick cords to transform flat felt surfaces into three-dimensional structures with acoustic qualities.

One Stool: With the One Stool project, Bastiaan De Nennie aims to achieve new 3D-printed plastic aesthetics by designing and printing one stool a day over the course of a year, using one kilogram of material.
