Design Diorama, 2016
The installation Design Diorama: the Archive as a Utopic Environment translates Studio Makkink & Bey’s international network into a diorama that is an idealised version of the personal salon of the studio’s founders, Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey. The installation also functions as a personal archive of the practice’s own work, objects by former studio assistants and interns and designers, artists and architects. Het Nieuwe Instituut has invited Studio Makkink & Bey to curate and design the contribution to the first edition of the London Design Biennale 2016.
