Items magazine used to be one of the leading magazine for design in The Netherlands. Their yearly selection of graduates is a tastery for upcoming talent. The 2012 graduates selection - unfortunately the last selection Items has been able to put together - was on display during the Eindhoven Design Week.
Together with graphic design collective Almanak, the visual editor of the magazine at that time, we designed the graduate exhibition, which was to travel around the country.
For this purpose, we designed a lightweight, easily movable system of exhibition furniture made out of CNC milled cardboard honeycomb sheets.
The product selection was ecclectic, colorful and divers and to be presented in a space that was likewise. We found a reference in an artpiece by Marijke van Warmerdam, using a plein white blank space as an intermediate between context and product.
