The inmarket

The inmarket marks the opening of the new intercoms season! For many years already Gellerie Binnen and curator Peter van Kester have organized an annual sale of new and vintage design objects from a range of designers. Some products come directly from the Milan fair. For the World Interiors Event this sale will be extended to the inmarket; a market where designers and industry offer their prototypes, pilot series, rest stock and show models, single copies of ceramics, fashion, lighting, furniture, furnishings and vintage design.

Care; at home in an unfamiliar environment

We are using more and more of it, but nobody wants to need it; care (freely rendered from Nietsche; everybody wants to grow old, nobody wants to be it). In the Netherlands recently some bespoke hospital and care concepts have been developed, in which perception of patients as guests or residents is central. Now that in 2013 the first generation of baby-boomers will retire, the theme is more actual than ever. Based upon successful projects and the futuristic vision of designers and industry this exposition shows how a well designed environment contributes to healing and well-being.

exhibition
Interiors collection Stedelijk Museum

 
Reopening after a renovation and extension that took more than 8 years the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art will once again claim it’s spot as the foremost museum of design in the Netherlands. Its design collection is one of the most outstanding in the world, with among others furniture, textiles, appliances and objects in wood, glass, ceramics, metal, plastics and synthetics, jewelry, posters and graphic design, but also complete interiors by Gerrit Rietveld. Connections with the outstanding collections of modern art are present in ceramics and textiles by Picasso and furniture by Donald Judd.

Contemporary living in a historic canal-mansion

Public Interiors

In 1993 ARCAM published a much talked-about book, entitled "public Interiors", and devoted to interesting (semi)public interiors in the city. In 2013, twenty years after this publication, the city appears to have changed also in this respect. It is therefor tempting to consider now already to give new attention to the phenomenon public interior in 2013. The theme is maybe more than ever important because the city of Amsterdam in writing it's DNA likes to refer to aspects as openness and hospitality.
