Open Wednesday - Sunday
More than a century ago, biologist Ernst Haeckel scored a hit with his amazing illustrations of unseen organisms. We collected all 100 lithographs and blew them up to 5 times life size for our exhibition. Come see the originals next to their hallucinating blow-ups and the works of Dutch architect H.P. Berlage, design studio Bernotat &Co and graphic designers Rudy Guedj, Martin Huger, Olya Troitskaya and Sophie Rogg who got inspired by the secret beauty of nature. Plus the Liquid Gold installation by Sophia Twigt. Open Wed - Sun, 13:00 - 18:00.
Official opening September 18th 20:30.

With larger than life illustrations by Ernst Haeckel, watercolors from Dutch architect H.P.Berlage, Radiolara lighting from Bernotat&Co and light ob...

Jolan van der Wiel
Jolan uses the natural phenomenon of gravity and magnetism for his designs. After making a series of stools he started collaborating with Iris van Herpen for the Magnetic Moon Dresses: "dresses whose very forms are generated by the phenomenon of attraction and repulsion." His latest project Dragonstone concerns architecture and clay. At Ignite he will explain and show his fascinating design process.
