As the realms of design and manufacturing converge and the designer increasingly takes on the role of both inventor and maker, production is subject to change. Deconstruct and disrupt, reverse and reinvent - creatives seek to shake up the status quo by exploring previously undiscovered paths in the process.

Following their quickly gained success, Envisions–a Dutch collective presenting anything but the end product, present an exhibition that captures their unique process, drive and key participating talents, while celebrating their short yet firm existence.

Presented in a similar art-school context as to where Envisions formed their approach as creatives and where they acquired fundamental skills; the show represents a feeling of ‘coming home’ after a series of interesting and insightful travels and adventures.

The gallery is transformed into a chaos-embracing and lively playground that showcases the collective's joint approach, whilst shining a light on individuals distinctive style and talent. The exhibition uncovers the processes of each designer and highlights concepts such as experimentation, error, authenticity, professionalism and wit.

A fast-paced growing initiative, Envisions’ colourful and imaginative collection of works has attracted a lot of attention since their debut at the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2016. By showcasing the possibilities of process, rather than end products, the group was the first to proudly expose work that was still in development on an international stage, promoting the relevance of design produced with unlimited creativity and multidisciplinary cooperation.
