In their art installation, Rotganzen dives into the symbolic meanings behind the little bits of coloured paper so often used for celebrations and traditions around the world. They express how the papers themselves are symbols for magic, joy and community. By oversizing them and integrating them into the space and architecture of 72 Courtyard, the designers explore what it’s like to magnify the moments of pure bliss that we have all experienced in one form or another.
Join the designers Robin Stam and Joeri Horstink behind the creation on September 15, as they launch the installation with a confetti bar themed party by Johnnie Walker, complete with aperitivos and complimentary confetti cocktails from 5pm onwards. They’ll be joined by DJs Guyboy and Supersonic, spinning their best beats throughout the whole event.
Established in 2009, Rotganzen is managed by designers Robin Stam and Joeri Horstink, together with managing partner Erik Schilp. The collective aims to build a bridge between art and design by finding the extraordinary in ordinary everyday objects and scenarios. Their work guarantees to catch the viewer by surprise both visually and conceptually, urging us to constantly question life and the world around us.
72 Courtyard is home to craft beer specialist Beer Belly, Japanese gastropub Lucky Fish, tapas joint Toro and the nightclub Beam.
