bar anne and space encountrs presents dutch design during milan design week 2018.
a cutting edge: show, bar, hang out, experience, meet, greet and creative hub all-in-one.
bar anne is designed by space encounters, an award winning architectural firm from amsterdam. merged with a spectacular installation by children of the light. the interior is created by some of the biggest break out talents including rick tegelaar, vantot, mae engelgeer, klaas kuiken, dirk van der kooij, muller van severen, jolan van der wiel, handmade industrials, jelle mastenbroek, sabine marcelis, brit van nerven, kranen/gille and aart van asseldonk.
bar anne is far from a regular exhibition. it is not pretentious; it is very easy going. it is low profile instead of high profile. it’s open and not restrictive. it is inclusive instead of exclusive. why? because all the designs are in use. you can try them, test them, sit on them, jump on them and even sleep on them. be our guest.
bar anne stays open when regular presentations close. we start at 11, serve lunch around noon, an aperitivo to get going, a dinner when hungry, a cocktail hour to shake things up and of course there will be music and dancing. till late. but we do not only feed the hungry or thirsty design lovers, together with frame magazine, bar anne hosts a series of talks and discussions about all aspects of design. just relax and listen.
bar anne is centrally located right between the famous zona tortona and the city centre in the historical museo diocesano. this special venue will be transformed into a brand-new hotspot in town welcoming everyone who’s curious and creative. open tuesday 17 till sunday 22 april for drinks, bites, music and more from 11 am to 1 am. anne is a curator, writer, entrepreneur, ambassador of the dutch design scene and mc of bar anne.
