The project ‘Design Diorama: The Archive as a Utopic Environment’, on display at the London Design Biennale from the 7th until the 27th of September 2016 in Somerset House, is a three-dimensional blueprint of the personal salon of the Studio’s founders: Rianne Makkink & Jurgen Bey. This contemporary diorama -originally a picture viewing device through which is seen- is a replica of their archive at home. It consists of a space filled with blue foam copies of objects by former studio employees, freelancers and interns as well as products and artefacts from various other designers, artists and architects. Parallel to the physical and temporary diorama installation during the London Design Biennale, a digital and permanent online index is developed. The Dutch contribution to the biennale is commissioned by Het Nieuwe Instituut.


The archive on this website is a digital index, a cloud of people gathered by Studio Makkink&Bey. Each of which tells its own story and represents the ideals and utopias of makers, thinkers and cultural figures that are related to their practice. This web archive is a junction of places, people and skills. It can be filtered by categories such as Topics, Disciplines and Generations as well as by Utopia Typologies, Topics and Words from Thomas More’s publication ‘Utopia’ from 1516.
