‘Dutch Design’ at Oranienbaum Palace
April 26th 2012 till September 30th 2012
In the summer of 2012, Oranienbaum Palace will be hosting an exhibition of contemporary Dutch Design and fashion in combination with historical artefacts from the Dutch Royal Archives. Built for Henriette Catharina, Princess of Anhalt-Dessau, Oranienbaum is part of the heritage of the House of Orange-Nassau. With a major conservation and refurbishment process nearing completion, the palace and its park have been restored to their former grandeur.
The exhibition features work by prominent Dutch designers like Viktor & Rolf, Gijs Bakker, Hella Jongerius, Spijkers & Spijkers, Marcel Wanders, Jan Taminiau, Iris van Herpen, Bibi van der Velden, Ineke Hans, Scholten & Baijings and Piet Hein Eek. However, young up-and-coming talent is also in evidence.
One of the sculptural pieces from the collection ‘Kinetic Landscapes’ of Pauline van Dongen will be exhibited here.
