Design and Art Installation by Kwannie & Man-Yee

Camera Japan x Cross Comix

Category : news · No Comments · by Sep 30th, 2022

‘Why not working together?’ the Camera Japan Festival and the Cross Comix Festival thought, because they are both held in the same weekend of 23/24 September, at the South of Rotterdam.

Therefore we designed a mini- 2D Living Room especially for the Camera Japan Festival visitors:)

The design is made in a cartoon style, but with some Japanese characteristics.

Big thanks to Joshua (our new intern), Maureen and Maria for helping out with painting!!!

We have a picture with Winy Maas, the founder of architecture company MDRDV.

MDRDV made the design of the Markthal and the Depot Boijmans. ‘Dag en Nacht van de Architectuur’ asked us to make three suits with typical buildings of Rotterdam. And the DEPOT was one of them:)

Wooden zodiac exhibition for Rotterdam’s Chinese New Year

Category : news · No Comments · by Feb 1st, 2022

Today, February 1st, is the start of the Chinese New Year. This year we celebrate the year of the Tiger. This year, the artwork does not only display the tiger, but the entire zodiac.

Instead of sawing out everything by hand, we were able to design and computer draw all 12 animals and let them lasercut. The lasercutting will give the exhibition a more professional look and feel.
The exhibition will be shown in the Markethall from February 1-13 and at the Timmerhuis from February 14-23.

Here are some making off pictures. Big thanks to Jahua from Lasergun Design, who did the awesome lasercutting 😃and our intern Rachel, for her it was her last week at our company😭
