About: Marga Weimans
pushes the boundaries of the fashion industry with her designs. She is interested in the combination of fashion and architecture. Her collections are very broad: from haute couture to pret a porter, including architectural showpieces and minimalistic dresses. The designer worked together with several artists from other fields like industrial designers and architects. Weimans wants to show her personal development and innovation in the designs. The realistic everyday environment of her studio is reflected in her work and transforms into a sublime dreamlike world. She incorporates elements of nature and space and uses earth tones and natural fabrics.She works with 3D perspectives and her designs include architectural materials like wood, iron and resin. She also creates her own fabrics by mixing fabric with fiberglass. in this way, Weimans' designs tell a personal story of how her creative ideas come about.
About: Sander Wassink is an artist and designer who encourages us to reconsider our ideas of beauty and aesthetic value. How can we reconsider what is important and what is desirable to include notions of history, memory and the preservation of a past which is slipping away. Amid new construction, new production, and constant proliferation of new forms and facades, Wassink turns his attention to the discarded, the abandoned, the left over and attempts to reimagine what can be done with the already partially formed. What new possibilities exist in the surfaces and materials that are half-built or half-destroyed. Whether his object is the partly demolished facade of an abandoned building, or the everyday detritus from our over productive culture, Wassink asks what new forms and new visions of beauty already exist to be discovered and appreciated. Sander Wassink was a succesful participant at SALON/BJ with his Dashilar-Store project in 2013.
About: Ma’ayan Pesach
recently graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, at the department Man and Leisure. Her work is diverse and contains conceptual design, product, graphic and also art. Most of her projects are influenced by my background and daily personal experiences in different aspects of life. Pesach found out that she tends to be the observer in most situations and projects when starting. She documents, analyzes and questions constantly while gathering the complete information. In most of her work
Ma’ayan tries to bring the fantasy and imagination to the viewer/user to stimulate their curiosity towards their everyday life.
