Farmer in search of style

The Design Huis in Eindhoven (The Netherlands), Dutch Design Museum under the artistic direction of Li Edelkoort, is now exhibiting a very interesting selection of design concepts about the "new farmer" trend.
Particolarly interesting:
* the Farm Project, by Mike Meire', which aims to teach to kids (and perhaps adults as well) the authenticity of the kitchen, with colours, smell, rituals and more;
*Studio Job farm tools in bronze, a celebration of life on the farm;
*Chikens portraits by Koen Vanmechelen, like true individuals;
*David Olschewski garden work tools, beautiful objects for the interiors;
*Axe Chairs, by Floris Schoonderbeek, beautifl chairs made of existing axe handles by the swedish company Gransfors.
*"Harvest", research project by Frank Tjepkema; it is a self supporting house, living community, amusementpark and restaurant. This project aims to bring back the bond between people and their sources of food and energy.
