Campaign Visuals Dutch Invertuals by Bastiaan de Nennie, specially made for the ‘Advanced Relics’ exhibition.
For the fifth time they presented new works at O’during the Salone del Mobile. Within thecontext of the future way of life, the designers explore the aesthetics and complexities of an increasingly virtual world, leaving behind the ‘old world’ with its outdated and sluggish systems. The intangible world is gaining ground, allowing us to renegotiate meaning and understanding of matter in a highly liquidized context. New rituals emerge; new forms of worship and devotion arise. We create relics to comfort our spirits. They prove and reflect our identity, mark our progress and verify our humanity. The result is a collection of contemporary relics, showing their precision, skills, symbolism and phenomena.
Designers: Bastiaan de Nennie, Carlo Lorenzetti, Daniel de Bruin, Edhv, Hongjie Yang, Nel Verbeke, Studio Truly Truly, Tijmen Smeulders.
