Today I visited museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam to see the Misfit exhibition of Hella Jongerius.
In 2005 Hella designed Jonsberg vase in four variants. The vase is held in a large number of musuem collections and it is also held in numerous private collections! I mean, who doesn't have one? (Yes, me. The white one is always sold out at any Ikea I visit.)
It was Hella's challenge of how to preserve traces of the craft process within a mass-produced product.
Meanwhile she designed in 2009 three wall-hangings; Pelle (hare), Mikkel (fox) and Gullspira (deer) for Ikea.
You should really visit the exhibition.
Jansen (not rich, but taste) tips;
- free admission on Wednesday
- have lunch in the restaurant with nice view
