Merkwaardig onderzoek en ontwerp van de streek
Remarkable Regional Research and Design
In 2016 our heritage and design collective was born and since every child needs a name, we chose to call it MOOS.
First, this is a reference to the typical and now long gone rooms in farmhouses of the Kempen region, which were called the 'moos'.
Second, we see it as an acronym that stands for 'Merkwaardig Onderzoek en Ontwerp van de Streek', a phrase that can be translated as 'Remarkable Research and Design of the (Kempen) Region'.
Our aim is to investigate regional historical phenomena and to translate the results of this research into the design of contemporary artifacts that answer current needs and expectations.
