Guest speakers

De Intuitefabriek
(Furniture, tableware, jewelery design)
The Intuïtiefabriek is an all female design studio finding common ground in their
intuitive way of working and their use of materials and techniques. They bring them to
create within different fields of design; from slip casting porcelain to blowing glass and
bending wood. The outcomes vary from furniture to tableware and jewelery. To De
Intuïtiefabriek designing is all about craftsmanship, the touch of material and the
actual act of making things. Their aim is to create perfectly crafted products, from
which you can feel the love with which they were made. They create a pure, precise
and almost fragile feeling, taking the observer into a beautiful new world.

Luuk van den Broek; co-founding member of Collaboration-O
(Space, product design)
Luuk van den Broek’s projects operate between the field of craftsmanship and
industrial design, intuitively looking for the deepest color, the most logical connection
or the most compelling composition. His work translates the exploration of
moments in time through material, color, and personal experience

Niek Pulles aka HEYNIEK
(Fashion and product design)
Blurring boundaries between product design and fashion while investigating the
interacts between body and material is the core of Niek’s work. Childhood inspiration,
archetypes, primitive forms with a hands on technique describes his creative
signature. If you would have to give it a name he would prefer researcher and visual
designer always with an unorthodox approach towards new processes. Despite the
focused forms and technique there is always the need for speed aiming to keep ideas
and concepts open, translucent and flexible to adapting new conditions. With surrealistic
atmospheres and optical illusions often as effect.

Nicola Anne Kirkaldy
(Contemporary art)
Nicola wants her work primarily to be understood from itself, throughout shape.
The creative process is similar to a morphological understanding; she focuses on the
shape and essence of shape. She takes an interest in the value of a plinth in relation to
an object and uses this relation in the shapes she creates. Thereby she wants to find
out if the objects will retain their original significance, or in relation to other objects,
lose their substantive intent

Iede Reckman
(Contemporary art)
Iede compares the making of a sculpture with natural phenomena. He sees nature as
an optimum balance between randomly and calculated influences. In his work he try
to find a similar balance; visualized in matter, but also in the process. At the moment
he is looking at 3-dimensional implementations that proved to be essential to
understand and underline scientific and mathematical principles. In his sculptures and
installations he tries to find elegant solutions to construct and ‘re-invent’ these

Organized by Makiko Shinoda
(Product and visual design)
The landscape of modern society finds us increasingly disconnected from a rich
sensory experience. Smells, sounds, colours and textures are standardized,
categorized and controlled in urban life; thereby eliminating all the subtle nuances
and richness that exist in the nature. This contributes to a lack of imagination,
communication, and spatial perception. How can we engage and stimulate our
senses in our daily lives? Her point of view for design is to create sensory
experiences for urban life to develop the nervous system by stimulating the brain
through interaction with sensory inputs.
