Studio Wieki Somers: Out of the Ordinary
Exhibition, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Netherlands, until 11 January 2015.
In celebrating the 10th anniversary of Studio Wieki Somers, the museum presents a selection of around 30 objects, with an emphasis on the newest series. This exhibition demonstrates the specific view the studio has on reality. The expertly produced objects combine beauty, technical ingenuity, and associative visual language, inviting the spectator to look at their own daily reality through different eyes. Since 2008, the coat rack by Studio Wieki Somers, has been an eye-catching feature in the entrance area of the museum. With this retrospective, more attention is focused on the work of the design- duo, which manages to turn everyday objects into exceptional items.
