Designers Profile: Being an artist for Driessens & van den Baar means that they show how they see their world and create their own visual world to communicate this vision. Both artists are strongly connected to handcraft, shown in techniques with textile, painting and photography. The process of research and making in the studio is essential for their work. Since 1999 all the works have been developed together. In 1999 Driessens & van den Baar founded the design company WANDSCHAPPEN. Since 2009 they have developed products in their studio, based on their visual art concepts, transformed into producible designs. Their love for textiles and crafts has lead to high quality handmade designs, shown and sold worldwide. The best known collections are the Felt Plants, Felt Vases and Felt Wall Objects.


Activity: Why do people live where they live and how do they make the place their home ?

More and more people decide to leave their birthplace to start a new life somewhere else in the world. For the new beginning they usually bring limited amount of personal belongings, such as furniture, home textiles, family portraits, religious signs, flowers and plants.

But what are the signs that they settle down and plan to stay for longer time?

As time passes and they get more familiar with the new environment, they will start decorate their house to make it a new home.

As part of Chiang Mai Design Week WANDSCHAPPEN invites the public to become part of this feeling: design a home icon, a vase for the family table, that will transform your house into a personal Home. The vase will be designed and worked out with the participants from  wool felt produced in Europe (brand: HOLLANDFELT) in combination with Thai silk from the world famous Jim Thompson.

Here and There

‘Here and There’ program selected 5 designers who represent Holland design thinking with their unusual approach in knowledge management and design research. By working on Thai related social issues and local materials, both Holland and Thai creatives can grow together from the common ground of strong curiosity about new design culture rooted in local craftsmanship and knowledge, a true inspiration for both cultures. The foundation of the program is the exhibition from the works of AtelierNL, Lucas Maassen&Margriet Craens, Wandschappen, Bora Hong and Nanu Youttananukorn at TCDC Chiang Mai building, enriched with a round table discussion, 3 workshops and a lecture by Thomas Widdershoven as a part of CMDW conference.
