SeriesDutch Design (4 of 11)
‘Products are given an important value when we know where they came from, how they were made, the effort that has been involved’, states the Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma. 'The starting point for my projects is a particular place. A place is the location, the vegetation, the people and animals.' Knowledge of raw materials and production processes was once localised. With the growth of industrialisation and globalisation this information has become ever more complex and unclear, leading to a disruption in our relationship to things. Christien Meindertsma (1980) wants to contribute to the transparancy of processes and enlarge knowledge of them.
