Over the weekend June 6th – 9th the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is hosting the exhibition “Supermodels – 100 Years of Dutch Design and Iconic Architecture”
Conceived by Amsterdam based design agency Concern as a response to the question how best to present the variety of Dutch design and architecture in a representative yet compact touring exhibition format, Supermodels presents scale models of important and/or iconic examples of Dutch architecture and design.
Premièred at Milan 2014 Supermodels is divided into three sections: Architect Houses – which does what you imagine it does – Dutch Design Models which presents 3D printed models of 100 Dutch chair designs including works by designers as varied as Gerrit T Rietveld, Marcel Wanders or Dirk Vander Kooij and Dutch Design (Doll) House, a conceptual dolls house featuring some 60 “rooms”, each decorated with works by leading Dutch artists and designers.
In addition a 3D body scan booth allows visitors an opportunity to learn more about the 3D printing process – and generate a 3D scan of themselves. If that sounds like an attractive proposition….
And as if all that wasn’t enough, until June 15th the Stedelijk Museum is presenting the exhibition “Marcel Wanders – Pinned Up at the Stedelijk, 25 years of design”

And by way of an introduction to Supermodels – 100 Years of Dutch Design and Iconic Architecture, a short film from Concern documenting how the Milan Dolls House came together.
