Living in a design exhibition, during the Dutch Design Week 2018

After the big success of last year, you can “wander” through a house full of design again! This time not in a clients’ house but in the new home of the designers and curators Studio Thier & van Daalen. During the Dutch Design Week Eindhoven they will temporarily live in a design exhibition and open the doors to the public.

This year they are happy to show their own recently renovated 1960s house with studio at home. The unique style of the house, of nine houses in a row, three stories high each, is better known as the ‘Bossche School’. Space and balanced proportions play an important role as well as the materials wood, concrete and brickwork.

After Iris van Daalen en Ruben Thier became the proud owners of this house at the beginning of this year, they have rebuilt, renovated, and designed a lot by themselves, preserving the beautiful windows, voids, steel stairs and special architectural details. ‘A beautiful architectural experiment’, they call it themselves.

The designers worked together with various companies including Mosa, Forbo, Caracterr and Baars & Bloemhoff in order to accomplish their ideas. With this successful result, Studio Thier & van Daalen shows that in addition to designing lamps and accessories, they can design and realize complete interiors as well.

Just like last year, Thier & van Daalen will most splendidly take on the role of curator. For The Young Collectors they curate sustainable and timeless designs from both Dutch and international designers that fit within the walls of this special home.

‘We want to show the designs in a context, instead of traditionally placing it on a pedestal’. In this way Thier & van Daalen will soon be living in a temporarily design exhibition and bring a lifestyle magazine to life.
