Materia exhibition: Luxurious Materials
|Start date||17 February 2017|
|End date||01 April 2017|
|Time||8:00 am - 5:30 pm|
|Location||Broeinest, Rotterdam (NL)|
The crisis is over, so with this new exhibition we want to unpack, celebrate the extras and enjoy the comfort and glamour. Discover the softest velvets and felts, impressively shiny gold leather and shimmering reflective surfaces. The value of these surfaces is both objective and subjective. The value of a luxury material may come because the material is scarce and difficult to obtain, or because it took many hours of work and effort to create. In some cases, a luxury material may be entirely one of a kind, used by a style icon, have a special story or have been created by an innovative new machine or process.
1. Glitter & Glamour (gold tiles, velvet, pearl, Swarovski stones…)
2. Deluxe naturals (carvings, embossed leather, transparent veneers, rose petal inlay…)
3. High-tech luxury (3d printed, veneered, milled, cast, flower prints in concrete…)
4. Unique luxury materials with a special history or origin (artfully edited petrified wood, pieces of the Berlin Wall…)
The exhibition is at the new location of Broeinest Rotterdam, Zomerhofstraat 71. It is open from 17 February to 1 April 2017, every workday from 08.00 to 17.30.
