Designkwartier is a festival about slow-design, food & lifestyle at the Zeeheldenkwartier, The Hague, 29-31 May 2015. Ateliercomplex ‘De Besturing’ where Studio Barbara Vos is located is joining this festival as a group. This years theme is ‘an ode to failure’. By making mistakes beautifull inventions can be done. At Prins Hendrikstraat 127, the artists of the Besturing will pass on their mistakes to each other, to do edit this failure with some of their talented skills, to create masterpieces which are sold on the spot. Studio Barbara Vos made diamond shaped tiles with holes, Sara Vrught and Geanne Welles continued working on these tiles by adding their ‘signature’.

Diamond shaped tiles made by Barbara Vos, completed by Sara Vrugt (wiring) and Geanne Welles (felt circles). These tiles made by multiple artists were sold during the exhibition. Tiddo de Ruiter and Maarten Schenkeveld are melting and pouring aluminium as an experiment. Leather bags are made by Myrte Memelink and Sara Vrugt is working on the embroidery machine.
