Studio Wieki Somers’s products are like ‘metaphors of everyday life’. Wieki Somers does not take the existing world for granted. Why are everyday things the way they are? Her transformation of everyday objects results in new and unexpected forms. For her, the inherent qualities of particular materials contribute to the meaning of her products. Her search for new forms is carried out with great attention to experimentation, the tactile qualities of materials and detailing.


Direction: Hans Wessels
Production: Boogiemen
