After months of apparent inactivity Hella Jongerius has suddenly reappeared on our radar – just you’ll either have to be in New York to experience her or wait a little.
On May 15th the film portrait “Hella Jongerius: Contemporary Archetypes” from Deign Onscreen opens in New York, and in the same week the film Objectified by Gary Hustwit is showing in New York , which also features an appearance by Hella Jongerius.
And because only seeing films can be dull, next week also sees the opening of the Nature Conservancy exhibition Design for a Living World at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in, you got it, NYC. For the exhibition Nature Conservancy sent 10 designers to unconventional locations and challenged them to create new products using local, sustainable products. Sent to Mexico, Jongeriusproduced a range of pots and other products from chicle.
Hopefully most of these events will tour eventually, we will keep you updated.
