Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age will present work spanning the career of innovative Dutch designer Joris Laarman. Laarman and his Lab are design pioneers and idea detonators whose intellectual and thoughtful approach to design is marked by combining science, technology, restless curiosity, and creativity with lyrical aesthetics. Laarman’s experimental methods of fabrication continually propel him to explore new processes for creating and have made him one of today’s most compelling designers.


Organized by the Groninger Museum, the Netherlands, this exhibition will feature furniture designs, applied projects and experiments from every phase of Laarman’s career, which will be presented alongside related videos, sketches and renderings that illustrate the Joris Laarman Lab’s creative and production processes. Founded in 2004, the Lab is a multidisciplinary hub of scientists, engineers, programmers and craftspeople who explore the possibilities of design through research, experimentation and groundbreaking technology.


The exhibition will feature numerous designs from the High’s collection, which boasts the largest public holdings of the Dutch artist’s work outside of his home country.
