How Niek Pulles sees the world is so refreshing, that’s why he was asked to art-direct the latest Modebelofte exhibition during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. When I visited the exhibition last sunday, I knew the colours, shapes and brilliantly curated outfits are printed in my mind forever. Some photo’s:
First thing noticed when Entering the Funnel – the official name of the exhibition – is the painted mannequins, wich according to Niek Pulles is our new future race. The handfull designers make the total look so tastefull, with newfound materials all so suprisingly put together.
Encapsulated by a series of wired funnels, the exhition gives the feeling of travelling through time and space. The idea for “Enter the Funnel” was created during this summer, connecting seamlessly to the general theme of Dutch Design Week “Enter a Brave new World”. Niek Pulles (HeyNiek) says ‘it’s intuition’. Visit the exhibition at Krabbedans Eindhoven ’till 2nd of december!
