Alissa + Nienke

Alissa + Nienke, 2016

€25.000
From their shared fascination with the interaction between man and space, designers Alissa van Asseldonk and Nienke Bongers jointly established a design studio. They both gained their degrees from the Department of Man & Well-Being at Design Academy Eindhoven. Together they envisage sparking curiosity and facilitating spontaneous discovery in daily life through their work. They actualize this by developing tactile, interactive materials and surfaces in which sensory experience is key. For the coming year the designers have set themselves the goal of developing their studio further, in terms of content – artistic and technical – so that their designs can actually be implemented in daily life and thus contribute to human well-being. They will be therefore be enriching their knowledge by following courses in philosophy and psychology, as well as in programs such as SketchUp or Solidworks and Arduino. Furthermore, they will be developing three projects: ‘BioMirror’, ‘Mirabilia’ and ‘Dangling Grid’. In addition they will develop a materials library and explore the use of stop-motion video. In order to make the work truly useful in everyday life, they are organizing public test moments and they will be collaborating with manufacturers and scientists. The designers regard these various pathways as different steps within a large-scale study that focuses on ‘experience-changing surfaces’

Gino Anthonisse

Gino Anthonisse, 2018

€25.000
Gino Anthonisse graduated in 2014 from the Fashion and Textiles Department of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK). As a clothing designer Anthonisse focuses on the role of fashion within our current society and his position herein. For Anthonisse, fashion is more than just clothing, because he believes it’s about an experience. He often strips clothing of its function and searches within this context for new combinations of classic garments, ethnic elements and various materials and techniques. In the past year he has mainly been involved with the collective Das Leben am Haverkamp. In the coming year he wants to focus primarily on his personal professionalization. Anthonisse will experiment with ‘living collage installations’ in which performance, clothing, photography and sound come together in sculptural forms.
