Hanna Kooistra

Born: 1995

Hometown: Amsterdam

Based in: Amsterdam

As a designer I am constantly studying, copying and transforming the everyday objects we surround ourselves with. These objects have an immense influence on how we experience the world and are often taken for granted. For me, it's about exploring the never-ending flow of potential and finding new interpretations hidden in our daily lives. With my graduation project I have created a set of design principles that continuously generate new structures by combining and transforming elements from context, history, material and technique.
In my collection ‘Stages of the ordinary’ the view of the everyday object transforms by questioning it from the context of the ornament. Ornament is often a forgotten language while it has a long history that goes far beyond than just a decorative layer. It is for me a form of communication, a guide in functionality, a manner of production and an indication of the origin. For me ornament has become a way of working.

From the perspective of ornament I selected objects that function just fine, but aren’t appreciated anymore in the current interior. First I dissected them, to get to the essence of the ornament, then I built them up again and introduce them in our time. My search for new interpretations is a dynamic design process of stacking, cutting, stitching, flattening and folding existing images and shapes. With these simple methods I transform the existing shape of an object to let it develop further.

From this work method I present my graduation collection that approaches ornament from multiple perspectives, ranging from decorative to practical. Including a chair inspired by a Dutch antique dining chair, de knopstoel. By folding the chair together, the two-dimensional image transforms into a practical product. The chair brings image together with product, decoration with construction and function with functionless.
