With the exhibition ‘Design from the land of the potato eaters – designers meet Van Gogh’, Het Noordbrabants Museum is bringing together modern design with well-known themes by Vincent van Gogh: a unique exhibition full of works by well-known designers and young talent.

  • Visit Het Noordbrabants Museum and examine Brabantian design in the context of well-known themes by Van Gogh.
  • Over 80 pieces by top designers and young talent: this is what world-class Brabantian design looks like.

As part of the 2015 Year of Van Gogh, 125 years after Van Gogh’s death, Het Noordbrabants Museum presents an exhibition entitled ‘Design from the land of the potato eaters – designers meet Van Gogh’. The featured collection consists of modern design pieces that would, the creators feel, have impressed Van Gogh himself.

Top artists and talents

Yksi Design, from Eindhoven, was commissioned by Het Noordbrabants Museum to develop the exhibition. For this purpose, they selected a number of very special, contemporary design pieces of Brabantian origin by top designers such as Maarten Baas and Piet Hein Eek but also various young talented designers. Their choices were based on three well-known themes in the work of Vincent van Gogh: the farmer’s land, simple living, and nature.

Made in Brabant

The exhibition ‘Design from the land of the potato eaters – designers meet Van Gogh’ uses Van Gogh’s work to encourage visitors to look at Brabantian design products from a different perspective. The collection consists of about 80 pieces and products and demonstrates that Brabant’s design is world-class.
