From Eindhoven to Coachella
Van Eijk graduated cum laude in 2000 from the renowned Design Academy Eindhoven. Her work has since been featured in museums, galleries and design fairs worldwide, from Milan and Paris to Tokyo and New York. In addition to her own collections, Van Eijk has designed for Studio Edelkoort, MOOOI, Saint-Louis and other prominent clients. More recently, she has developed an art installation for the forthcoming Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the United States.
Tea towels for label ‘by TextielMuseum’
To coincide with the exhibition, the TextielMuseum is launching three exclusive tea towels for its label ‘by TextielMuseum’. Inspired by nature, Van Eijk created three vibrant designs that were produced in the TextielLab. The production process can be seen up close on the looms in the lab. The tea towels will be available following the exhibition opening in the TextielShop and via the web shop.
During the course of the exhibition, the TextielMuseum will also be organising various workshops and masterclasses inspired by Van Eijk’s working method. A book will also be released by nai010 publishers about the craftmanship of Kiki van Eijk entitled ‘Imaginings by Kiki van Eijk’. The publication will be available for purchase in the TextielShop and online at nai010.
