Matter of Time

Dutch Invertuals present new work during this year’s Dutch Design Week from the 23rd till 31st of October 2010 in Eindhoven.

The exhibition ‘Matter of Time’ involves 600-year-old wood; oak wood which once served as the foundation for the Eindhoven city entrance.

Dutch Invertuals is a collective of individual designers. Together they present their work in an exhibition in which their contemporary viewpoints are expressed through images, objects, materials, insights and stories.
After successful exhibitions during the Salone del Mobile, the Dutch Design Week and Elle Inside Design, they now present new work during the Dutch Design Week 2010. For the second time the exhibition will take place at design agency Edhv. This industrial but stylish environment is transformed by the Invertuals into an extraordinary exhibition space.
Through experiments and research, the invertuals have translated the value and symbolism of the 600 year oak wood into contemporary design projects. Especially the concept of time and the aesthetics of the material are used as a source of inspiration.
The wood has been revised by old crafting techniques, its transience is visualized, it is getting a second life as a foundation and it is transformed into time pieces, sound images, interaction instruments and sensorial objects.
