MATIJS KORPERSHOEK - I - PIN
The i-pin is a stripped-down jewel - just a bit of lead seal and a pin really, with the international symbol for 'information' pressed into the lead. The person wearing the i-pin can be and actively wants to be spoken to, making this minimal jewel a direct invitation to interhuman contact. A small gesture that could have big consequences.
Matijs Korpershoek was born in Leeuwarden in 1969 and works in Eindhoven. He studied at the 'Men and Living' Department of Eindhoven's Design Academy. His two final-year projects (1996) - a 'Magnetic Case' and promotional articles - received the Dutch Furniture Award and the Talent Trophy at the Annual Advertising Awards (Netherlands Art Directors' Club). His 'Magnetic Case' has entered the permanent collection of the Centraal Museum Utrecht and Korpershoek was nominated for the Rotterdam Design Prize in 1998. He has been designing for Droog Design since 1996.
In 2001, he designed a lapel pin for the 'Woonbeurs' (Ideal Home Exhibition) in Amsterdam. He set up Small Inventions in 2002 as a vehicle for all his products, art (jewellery), commercial home products and promotional gifts.
