The exhibition ‘Out of the Ordinary’ coincides with the publication of an eponymous and richly illustrated book that highlights the design philosophy of Studio Wieki Somers. The book shows the sources of inspiration, the design process, as well as the final products in their new habitats. The book includes contributions from design theorists Pierre Doze, Anniina Koivu and Louise Schouwenberg, along with contributions by Sjarel Ex, former director of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, and Annemartine van Kesteren, design curator.
Photographer Elspeth Diederix has visualized Studio Wieki Somers’ research themes, and photographer Elian Somers has caught a glimpse behind the scenes of the studio. The publication is designed by Mevis & Van Deursen and published by JRP Ringier.
