Dutch designer Kiki Van Eijk's latest collection - on show at Milan's Exits-Galleria Michele De Lucchi - includes a series of furniture and objects produced in collaboration with the director of Rome's Secondome design gallery, Claudia Pignatale.
The collection was born from a vast series of hand-drawn sketches. Through an organic process of elimination and investigation, van Eijk condensed these into a series of seven limited-edition objects, including clocks, stackable furniture and even a totem.
'It was very intuitive process and really started from a blank piece of paper,' says van Eijk. 'It's about the joy of sketching and modelling by hand, and letting the products grow over several months. The pieces have all kind of references, but at the same time none at all.'
