Step into the wondrous world of Kiki van Eijk. The designer is known for her fantastical designs: from whimsical clocks to wall hangings for Google and poetic window displays for Hermès. With set designer Theun Mosk, she creates an exhibition in the TextielMuseum that appeals to multiple senses.

Kiki van Eijk has been making her mark on Dutch Design for 20 years. To celebrate two decades of her contribution to this internationally acclaimed design aesthetic, the TextielMuseum presents highlights from her oeuvre in a unique way. The exhibition shows the breadth of Van Eijk’s talent: from colourful wall hangings and luxury textile objects to furniture, clocks and lamps. The departure point for all her work is a lively curiosity that sees her experiment with different materials and production methods including glass, ceramics, bronze and textiles. This versatility results in fantastical and quirky designs.

For the exhibition, Van Eijk collaborates with set and spatial designer Theun Mosk, who is known for his eye-catching designs for theatre productions as well as his independent installations. Together, they challenge you to playfully discover Van Eijk’s work. Take a look in a large diorama that showcases her tablecloth and tableware, zoom in on the designer’s sketches with special camera’s, or see objects appear in the lighting while moving around. Shape your own journey of wonder throughout the exhibition and marvel at the poetic work of Kiki van Eijk.
