World Premiere of Hella Jongerius: Contemporary Archetypes
Denver-based filmmaker Amie Knox of A bar K Productions shot the documentary on location in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Makkum, Indianapolis and New York. The half-hour film explores Jongerius’ design process through interviews with the designer and her assistants, the manufacturers of her designs and the curators and retailers who admire her work. This seminal designer and her influence are discussed by leading figures in international design, including Paola Antonelli (The Museum of Modern Art, New York), R. Craig Miller (Indianapolis Museum of Art) and New York design retailer Murray Moss. Manufacturers of her designs are also featured, including Rolf Fehlbaum (Vitra), Michael Maharam (Maharam), and Jan Tichelaar (Royal Tichelaar, Makkum).
Jongerius and filmmaker Arnie Knox will be onhand after the screening for a Q&A.
