Pakhuis De Zwijger
Beat the wintertime blues at Ninety Minutes of Frame #6: Pigment Pioneers as speakers channel the warmth of the full colour spectrum. Join us at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam on Thursday 19 February.
Colour is something of a design enigma. Few know exactly how to apply it; many don't dare to try. Refusing to submit to the restrictions imposed by conventional colours, makers across several fields of design turn to scientific or spatial experimentation. Experience designer Sam Bompas of Bompas & Parr, designer Hilde Koenders, artist Krijn de Koning and curator Anne van der Zwaag share their methods of fearlessly implementing colour with a range of images, materials and spaces.
International spatial design magazine Frame takes centre stage with an engaging speaker series Ninety Minutes of Frame, a live version of the magazine.
Design and Architecture Critic
Jeroen Junte is one of the Netherlands' leading authorities on design and architecture. As well as frequently contributing to Frame, Junte writes for other major publications such as de Volkskrant, Het Financieële Dagblad and Het Nieuwe Instituut's Design.nl.
Junte is also the editor of many books including Dutch Design in the 21st century and Dit is Design.
Sam Bompas and Harry Parr joined forces in 2007 to found their London studio, kitchen and workshop Bompas & Parr which fuses the worlds of architecture and food. The duo develops new and innovative recipes and ways to consume them. Jelly is their medium of choice, allowing Sam and Harry to explore the tasty relationship between the two seemingly disparate fields. The pair also conceives multisensory experiences such as a climbing wall made of chocolate or in another instance, body appendages.www.bompasandparr.com
Dutch designer Hilde Koenders applies her background to the arenas of fashion, graphic arts, and spaces. Since graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2005, Koenders has collaborated with Amsterdam's Stijlinstituut, Belgian fashion designer Walter van Beirendonck and trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort. Her latest projects include the creation of themes, concepts and designs for Amsterdam's biannual fashion trade show Modefabriek.www.hildekoenders.nl
Amsterdam-based Krijn de Koning studied audiovisual design at Amsterdam's Rietveld Academie. Combined with a haitus to study at the Institut des Hautes Etudes en Arts Plastique in Paris, the result is a vibrant portfolio of colour-driven interventions. The artist's site-specific installations slice bold swathes of colour into natural landscapes, buildings and interiors to add architectural and sculptural qualities.www.krijndekoning.nl
With a background in Modern and Contemporary Art from Utrecht University, Anne van der Zwaag has since transitioned into the worlds of architecture, art, design and fashion. Organising exhibitions and educational programs in Dutch museums as well as lecturing at international universities and academies. Growing from her passion for colour, Anne initiated an international symposium – Colour in Time – inside Amsterdam's Tropenmuseum in collaboration with ArtEZ Institute of the Arts and the Amsterdam Fashion Institute.www.meetanne.com
