The Great Indoors: The Nature of Things
The Great Indoors is a biennual event with workshops, an international competition, and lectures that aim to stimulate discussions on the interior, and which will contribute to talent development and theory in that field. The Great Indoors is an initiative of Marres Projects, Bureau Europa and FRAME magazine, and will take place for the fourth time in 2013. This edition’s theme, 'The Nature of Things', is a study of the material and immaterial developments of interiors within a globalised reality. High-level entries for the competition will come from all over the world.
This week, the new logo of The Great Indoors 2013 was launched. The graphic design is developed by studio WOAU! in Rotterdam.
New Programme Director Marres Projects
In 2008, Brigitte Bloksma started as Programme Director of Marres Projects. Now, five years later, she leaves Marres. Over the past years, Bloksma developed Marres Projects and helped to initiate unique projects, including The Great Indoors, Out of Storage and Landscape in Perspective. On March 1, 2013, Bloksma started as Head of Van Eyck Mirror/products and concepts at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. In addition, she founded her own company, ADD+.
The board and staff of Marres regret that Brigitte Bloksma is leaving, but wish her the best of luck in her new position. Pieternel Fleskens will succeed Bloksma as Programme Director of Marres Projects. She is the former Business Coordinator of Marres.
