In Rotterdam we have visited legendary VIVID gallery.
Established in 1999 by Saskia Copper and Aad Krol, VIVID was one of the first galleries to exhibit contemporary limited design. Important creative hub for Dutch conceptual design of the last 10 years, VIVID inhabitants the iconic Red Apple Building designed by KCAP Architects&Planners.
Airy and fresh space on the ground floor always occupies exhibitions of unique conceptual design by many important creators such as Ettore Sottsass, Hella Jongerius, Studio Job, Atelier van Lieshout, Slothouber & Graatsma and Jaime Hayon, among many others.
We have looked behind the scene of the gallery and in its storeroom we have found some pieces by young as well as established Dutch and international designers. Chairs by Dirk Vander Kooij or Maarten Baas, porcelain and glass objects by Japanese designer Hisakazu Shimizu and other artistic objects documents cult status of this exhibition space.
