After Paris, Fabrica inaugurates at the Blaak 10 space in Rotterdam a new temporary store which will stay open until the end of june 2007.
The occasion is the opening of YOU ARE HERE, an exhibition showing the results of a workshop held by Fabrica at the Willem de Kooning Academy last March.
Invited by the French Embassy Cultural service last March, Sam Baron, head of Fabrica Design, has held a workshop titled “From
Tulips to Baguettes” with a multidisciplinary group of 30 students of the Willem De Kooning Academy on the “Identity” issue: what it means in a tridimensional space (interior, architecture, products and over the borders of countries) and how it is defined culturally.
Besides the results of the workshop, the exhibition will also present a new collection of Fabrica Features products, specifically edited for the shop in Rotterdam, reinterpreting the Delph blue and the typical Dutch pottery of the 17th century.
