HOUT/WOOD is an exhibition at Het Nieuwe Instituut about the material and the site it originates from: the forest. Our roles in making the exhibition ranged from spatial and graphic design to being editors and providing objects and materials to support the narrative.

HOUT/WOOD showcases works by Aldo Bakker, Eelco Brand, Charles & Ray Eames, Ernst van der Hoeven, Chris Kabel, Lex Pott, Cedric Price, Bethan Laura Wood, Lukas Oleniuk, Onix, SeARCH, Hendrik Wijdeveld, James Wines and others. Their work is presented in a context of historical, cultural and societal references.

The exhibition is on until the 10th of August 2014 at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam. 

With: Dan Handel, Babette Zijlstra, Wendel ten Arve, Guus Beumer and Gert Staal.


Views of WOOD, impressions of the forest of wooden sheets we layed-out in Het Nieuwe Instituut in the summer of 2014. The whole principle of the exhibition design was to cover the room in long strips of wooden sheets (Radiplex) and to fold these sheets to create spaces and routings.
