MU

Mu Goes Milan, taking along six different works by four designers/collectives. In the past two years, HeyHeyHey, Lucas Maassen, Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters and Raw Color developed works that were for the greater part commissioned by MU and could already be seen separately at MU, sometimes in a more extensive form.

‘Mu Goes Milan’
Location: Ventura Lambrate, Via Privata Oslavia 8, 20134 Milan, Italy
General Opening: Times, Tuesday 17 – Sunday 22 April, 10h00 - 20h00,
Open Evening: Wednesday 18 April, 20h00 - 22h00

MU gives a few prominent Eindhovense designers the opportunity to develop projects that deserve to be seen much further afield than their hometown. And where better to present these projects than the venue of the annual gathering of the world of design: the Salone di Mobile in Milan, according to MU.

This is a short summary of the exhibition:
Temporary Trees by Raw Color and Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters. Raw Colors also presents un upload project in which common-or-garden plastic products are committed to the digital domain in the form of 3D scanned models. Lucas Maassen presents a project in which he needs his three under-age sons’ work. They will paint the hand-made pieces of furniture for 1 Euro a piece and, in compliance with the law on working hours for children, work for no more than 3 hours a week. In addition work of Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters, they imitates the unique tide of inland sea in the north of the Netherlands by translating this into a production technique. More information about these projects.
