as a bridge building initiative between the netherlands and the arab world, NE+AR invites studio mieke meijer and olivier van herpt to exhibit at dubai design week 2017. it pits the work of the two forward-thinking designers together into one encompassing installation. exemplified by the pair’s creativeness and open-mindedness, design was seen as the best method to create cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary relationships between the regions. since its conception in 2012, the program has continually progressed towards its main goal of establishing a sustainable connection between dutch design and that of the arab communities.

the NE+AR exhibition at dubai design week 2017 displays key designs, as well as processes, by studio mieke meijer and olivier van herpt. as a minimalist yet versatile furniture design, meijer’s ‘materialism’ tables explore elements of modularity and customization of materials. offering flexibility through materials also, van herpt’s contribution showcases his now renowned ‘3D ceramics printer’ and its creations in all textures, shapes and sizes. the final piece on show is meijer’s ‘airframe’ wardrobe, which composes traditional materials to create a beautiful and functional configuration.
