Vij5 at the Young Collectors – DDW 2018


“Living in a design exhibition”

During the Dutch Design Week 2018 you could “wander” through a house full of design at Studio Their & van Daalen; the new home of the designers and curators of this exhibition. They opened their doors to the public and temporarily lived in a design exhibition. With the exhibition, Iris van Daalen and Ruben Thier were happy to show their own recently renovated 1960s house with a studio at home designed by architects W. van Hagen and J. Hurkmans. The unique style of the house, of nine houses in a row, three stories high each, is better known as the ‘Bossche School’. Space and balanced proportions play an important role as well as the materials wood, concrete and brickwork.

After Iris and Ruben became the proud owners of this building at the beginning of that year, they have rebuilt, renovated, and designed a lot by themselves, preserving the beautiful windows, voids, steel stairs and special architectural details. ‘A beautiful architectural experiment’, they call it themselves.

The exhibition also featured work from the Vij5 collection: the Trestle Table by David Derksen, Pigments & Porcelain cups by Alissa + Nienke, Graphic Time clock “Dot” by Raw Color and the Coatrack by the Meter by Maarten Baptist.
