Central Square North Sea Jazz 11|12|13 July 2014

The famous Dutch North Sea Jazz festival commissioned Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eijk to re-design their 'central square'.

The square, situated in the center of the Ahoy complex in Rotterdam, forms the heart of the festival. A place where visitors can eat, have a drink or wander around the Jazz related shops.

Kiki and Joost got inspired by the big industrial constructions of Rotterdam's port and created a gigantic extra level in the existing 2000 square meter space.

As an addition to the industrial style, there's a big pergola floating above the elevated floor, resulting in a cozy garden-like atmosphere. Graphic lampshades capture the jazz feeling and create the recognizable Joost and Kiki feel to the central square. With a giant chandelier, room dividers, special lamp structures and a floor plan that forms a pixelated graphic, the space has been transformed into a pleasant place to be.

The structure of the square is executed in collaboration with stage design company Look-n-Feel. The design of this space is the first step to a complete metamorphosis, which will find its completion in the upcoming years.

Tudor Furniture for Moooi, Salone del Mobile

Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk combined their strengths in designing a cupboard, low cupboard and buffet, inspired by the harmonious constructions and ornamental decorations of the Tudor houses.


The embellishing patterns made by Kiki and woven in refined textiles, are so endearing that the duo decides to frame them like precious canvases enclosed in a solid structure. Joost focused on laying the fundaments of the overall design and wooden framework. This resulted in the Tudor furniture collection.


Moooi together with Joost and Kiki, welcome you to enjoy and gather inspiration at their presentation during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Joost and Kiki at Designblok Prague 2013

Art House Colloredo-Mansfeldský palác


Designblok opens the new conceptual space entitled Art House. It will be designated for non-commercial presentations of top Czech and foreign designers from the field of art design. 


Visitors will have the opportunity to see the duo of designers Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk from the Dutch city of Eindhoven. Their exhibition represents a combination of textiles and textures made by Kiki with expressive technicist structures made by Joost. 


Designblok Prague - Design and Fashion Week celebrates 15 years of existence this year

Designblok - design and fashion week - celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2013. Its first year took place in autumn 1999; the first participants included Vitra, Konsepti, BeldaFactory, and Klára Nademlýnská. These names show that the event focused not only on top product design, but also jewelry and fashion. Even though the number of exhibitors has increased from 14 to more than 200 over the past 15 years and the number of visitors has increased from hundreds to thousands (1,000 visitors in 1999 and 42,000 visitors in 2012), the essentials of Designblok have remained the same: an emphasis put on selectiveness and the quality of objects on display, international marketing and commercial impact, a permanent effort made to link creative figures with production and sale, plus the support of young talents and schools.   



7 October -  13 October 

opening hours Tuesday - Saturday 10.00 - 21.00  Sunday 10.00 - 19.00 


Art House | Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace | Karlova Street nr 2, Prague 1| on the Royal Route close to the Charles Bridge

Woven Cabinet at Inside Design Amsterdam

Woven Cabinet will be show during Inside Design Amsterdam

A cabinet constructed in oak wood with a reference to timber framing as seen in architecture.

Joost van Bleiswijk designed the frame. The space in between the framing is closed with textiles designed by Kiki.

It's a design for Ee labels which is famous for its labels as you find in your own clothing. It is challenging to explore the boundaries of a technique for such small items in order to experiment on a bigger scale with a different function.
