For the second time DESIGN STUDIO NIRUK’s exhibition „Diving into processes. Materialising ideas.“ was presented to the public. In a small gallery in the heart of Ehrenfeld, one of Cologne’s vibrant districts, visitors could experience the product designs, material studies and the latest prototypes of the designer duo. From inspirations and experiments to real product ideas, the exhibition was filled with a personal touch and visitors were given the opportunity to get an insight into NIRUK’s way of working.
DESIGN STUDIO NIRUK was awarded with the PASSAGEN PRIZE 2019 for this unconventional presentation and its individual products.
Therefore a a big thanks goes to all visitors, Büro Sabine Voggenreiter, German Design Council and Stadt Köln for their great support! It was an eventful PASSAGEN DESIGN WEEK KÖLN 2019!
Hooray! It’s done: at Biennale Interieur 2018, DESIGN STUDIO NIRUK took to the stage in Kortrijk, showcasing unconventional product designs.
Inspirations, Experiments and Ideas were the keynote themes along which the exhibition design was structured and that invited visitors to immerse themselves in a unique world. The prevailing focus: materiality. Cork, concrete, glass or porcelain – DESIGN STUDIO NIRUK creates symbioses, develops innovative solutions and takes the time needed to come up with good design. Thank you very much for visiting us at Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk. For those who could not make it to the fair, explore our work at PASSAGEN 2019 in January during Imm Cologne.
Our journey into the world of geometric structures, innovative textures and new materials continues! Diving into processes – materialising ideas.
See you in Cologne! Nina & David
Away from the mundane and into the unknown – childlike curiosity and an honest passion for materials:
for the first time, DESIGN STUDIO NIRUK will be providing an insight into its approaches, showcasing their very unique perspective of the design process under the banner of Diving into processes – materialising ideas.
Inspirations. Ideas. Experiments. Three elements of design that are at the focus of the work by Nina Ruthe and David Antonin, showcased at Biennale Interieur at Kortrijk, 18 – 22 October 2018. The design duo develops its own materials, always keen on thinking outside the box. Over the last few years, the designers have thus created surprising objects with a very special appeal: from playful glass objects and minimalist mirrors to sophisticated pieces of furniture – NIRUK’s work not only focuses on the results of clear design, but also on the production process. The playful treatment of reflections, textures and material qualities characterises the designers’ method. For the first time, the duo provides a deeper insight into its approach and, alongside ‘free to edition’ product designs, showcases the creative process in its ‘Material Lab’. It’s almost as if you’re getting a glimpse into their studio located just outside Cologne.
„You are warmly invited to meet us at Biennale Interieur 2018. Come and immerse yourself!
We are looking forward to welcoming you!“
