SHAPES OF SWEDEN ACQUIRED BY THE CENTRE POMPIDOU
The conceptual solution for car seating: ‘Shapes of Sweden’, is officially acquired by the Design and Industrial Prospective Collection of the Centre Pompidou in January 2017. The object is also selected for the exhibition ‘Printing the World’ that opens on the 15th of March in the Centre Pompidou. The exhibition brings digital technology and creation together. In ‘Shapes of Sweden’ the synergy of these two disciplines resulted in an alternative for car seating with non-scarce materials and more environmentally friendly 3D techniques. Works were selected that explore the implications of the fourth industrial revolution. Other participating designers from the Netherlands are: Aldo Bakker, Joris Laarman, Dirk van der Kooij and Olivier van Herpt.

FLUID MATTER | LIQUID AND LIFE IN MOTION
From the 2nd of December till the 26th of February we will exhibit our project Dynamorphosis, the beauty of inner Mechanisms in the expo Fluid Matter. The exhibition will take place in MU, Torenallee 40-06, on Friday 2 December at 8 pm.
Lilian van Daal and Roos Meerman developed ‘Dynamorphosis, the beauty of inner mechanisms’ in collaboration with Renee Van Amerongen of the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences of the University of Amsterdam / Universiteit van Amsterdam.
‘Dynamorphosis’ consists of a series of 3D printed, kinetic objects. This project merges the invisible biological process of the body with 3D printing, with attention to biology’s ability to self-assemble, transfer substances, and maintain equilibrium.
Fluid Matter presents the winning projects of the Bio Art and Design Award 2016, developed in collaboration with leading Dutch researchers in the life sciences, alongside several recent works that share a dimension of fluidity. The works will reflect on, demonstrate, or even contest advances in life sciences research. They will also probe fluidity in the realms of interspecies exchange, personal identity, metabolic processes, and even in the exchange between our bodies and our oceans.
