The new decors, generated in synergy with the Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk, feature a new emotional style, ever light and unpredictable: the classical simplicity of artisan work meets the technological know-how of an ever-evolving company.
In order to present its 2012 releases, OmniDecor participated in the 2012 Milan Design Week, taking part in the event: Fragments, between Matter_Surfaces and Lighting, concept by Silvio De Ponte/DPSA+D, within the Temporary Museum for New Design, at La Perla showroom.
Exploring space through the senses and the endless possibilities of different communication codes: concrete matter, evanescent light, abstract surfaces. A complex environment, consisting of multifunctional and articulated surfaces, to awaken sensory perception and reveal a new and ever-changing reality. The result is the intertwining of fragments coming together to form a distinct unit. OmniDecor contributed with the release of two decors of the new "Kiki van Eijk Collection": Fabric and Crochet, produced on glass from the DecorGem Design range. The new decors refer to a dream like dimension, and communicate a feeling of matter and timeless space.
The collection is enriched with Mesh, Wireflowers, Dandelion, Coralline, Autums and Linen decors.
KIKI VAN EIJK
Kiki van Eijk was born in 1978 and graduated Cum Laude in 2000 from Design Academy Eindhoven.
She became known for her famous “Kiki Carpet”.
Now she’s primarily working on her own collection which is presented in galleries, museums and fairs worldwide, in London, Paris, New York, Milan, Tokyo. Besides her own collection she works on projects for companies and institutions and her work is published and sold world-wide.
Her work has a very personal and emotional character. She loves stories. Her early sketches could easily have served to illustrate the imaginative stories of Mary Poppins or Alice in Wonderland. Kiki finds her inspiration in everyday beautiful objects and details, she doesn’t search for these objects; she just finds them. Lately her design process has become more and more intuitive and she starts more and more from a complete blanc canvas. Kiki’s work is easily recognizable by her mild and playful designs.
Her nostalgic approach combined with her poetic and personal style come to life in a wide range of work like carpets, lighting, furniture, ceramics, glassware and luxurious textiles.
