We once again attended the Dutch Design Week from 21 through 29 October in Eindhoven.
And just like last year, we are highlighting our partnership with designer Ulrike Jurklies. We all got a lot of praise for her ‘Disposition’ installation last year. This year, we want our partnership to do even better.
Ulrike is returning to her roots with her new piece ‘See-through’. After all, before studying Industrial Design in Munich, she finished an apprenticeship in furniture-making.
She became inspired by the bits of coloured plastic left over from the manufacture of sheets. This inspiration brought a new furniture line to life.
The designs rely on traditional linking systems and a clear design language, emphasising the appearance of this colourful and transparent material.
And we at Zweko Optics have been given the opportunity to give Ulrike’s ideas concrete form. The prototypes that she presented were based on her imagination and we gave them physical form in our atelier in Bocholt.
