What are the effects of globalized production chains? How do we define transparency? For Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma, the process is just as important as the product. Her work is now on display at The Vitra Design Museum, in Christien Meindertsma: Beyond the Surface.

Meindertsma’s interest in the design process has taken her to places such as garment factories and waste disposal sites, and brought an intense rigour to the interviews she has conducted during these investigations. The exhibition encompasses not only finished products, but also material samples, prototypes and photographs.
