The designers of Atelier NL and Maarten Kolk operate as biologists, archeologists and ethnologists during their design process. Invited by Jurgen Bey and Rianne Makkink, they spent a year in residence at a farm in the Dutch Noordoostpolder. They closely investigated the specific vegetation, historic roots and local culture, to create designs that are strongly rooted in this specific area.</p> Atelier NL Ceramics European Design Gardens Maarten Kolk Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen 534669c7b345bc76 Wed, 18 Nov 2009 10:34:55 +0000 Boijmans.educatie 5509 at
