In October 2011 during Dutch Design Week, the Laikingland team were invited to take part in T Workshop by Kiki & Joost.
The aim of the workshop was to choose an idea from Kiki and Joost that could be developed into a Laikingland beautifully crafted kinetic object.
Here is the Laikingland team with their hosts and some assembled objects for inspiration.
Our favourite idea from Kiki to create a thousand flames from one simple church candle.
The idea developed and started to take some form language from Joost.
Here is the final concept design drawing.
A wonderful mix of Kiki's textile ceramics.
And Joost's constructivist framework.
