Five unique themes
The exhibition is centred around five themes: interior, tulip mania, portraiture, fashion, and trade and new tastes. A foretaste...
Discover the prize-winning, high-end design of Ruben van Megen. Van Megen uses new materials and techniques. With his special designs, Van Megen has one in number of international awards, such as the Red Dot Design Award and Talent Award and A’Design Award, both in 2018
Also on display are masterpieces by Isabelle Torrelle and Christian Otto, creators known for pushing the envelope. They merge the strengths of weaving and embroidery, creating more than 90 variations in colour and technique.
Come and admire the photography of Marie Cecile Thijs, who visualises her personal interpretation of the 17th-century Dutch Masters in a manner that is both beautiful and contemporary. The photographer plays with her subject, brings it to life or simply lets it come into its own in time and space. Objects become characters. They escape their original context and take on an entirely new identity. Her intriguing, sometimes humorous, creations bring together tranquillity and dynamism.
Come discover the creations of famous fashion designer Tess van Zalinge. Her work is inspired by Dutch craftsmanship and Dutch design, with a nod to Dutch heritage, including Delft Blue. Her designs are often structured in form, but with light and subtle details. The use of colour and prints makes for designs that are lively and innovative.
