''Dat kan mijn kleine nichtje ook''

Project about the aesthetics of tinkering.

Drawing+product — © Joni Veizaj & Tessel Burger

”Dat kan mijn kleine nichtje ook”(My little niece can do that too), a statement which haunts museums and exhibitions. A statement to classify one’s work as tinkering, but is this statement as negative as we think it is.

What is the deviding line between tinkering and design?

In this project I researched the positive aspects of tinkering and how I could acquire these in product design. By translating tinkering techniques into production techniques, I translated the tinkering atmosphere into product design. With these 2 furniture pieces I want to let the viewer experience the joy of making with a work that also puts the statement ‘’Dat kan mijn kleine nichtje ook’’in a different light and wonders whether this comment is as negative as it seems.
