workshop, one day
Dutch and Chinese designers
Eindhoven (NL), De Smalle Haven
In this master class day, twenty designers entered into collaboration with one another. The deep-rooted Chinese tradition of working in paper with natural materials and the strong Dutch tradition of simple, clear, and graphic design met in an inspirational way. During the first workshop designers and architects wrapped typical Dutch sweets like cinnamon Candy and Wilhelmina peppermint and authentic Chinese food; all kinds of beautiful tea leafs and moon cakes. The concept related to packaging, concealing, and presenting as well as the results of hands-on material experiments is shown in a film in the exhibition 'Chinese Soul Space'.
