Dutch Profiles: Studio Wieki Somers Designers

In the hands of designer Wieki Somers and her partner Dylan van den Berg, ordinary objects become stimuli for a more poetic take on our daily lives. They explore the hidden qualities of objects that can evoke memories - and stir the imagination.

Studio Wieki Somers won various prestigious prizes and their works are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

One of Studio Wieki Somers'current projects is Frozen in Time. It's a series of products inspired by photographs of an ice-storm in the north-eastern Netherlands on March 2, 1987. For one day, the whole landscape was covered in a thick of layer ice. A giant still-life in which everything became connected - and the passing of time seemed to stop altogether.
