Eelko Moorer is an interdisciplinary designer-maker of interior artefacts, footwear and bespoke accessories. His interest is in how artefacts can function as performative agents offering critical and alternative perspectives on existing typologies and contexts through design.
Moorer approaches design as language with everyday artefacts functioning as a vehicle to investigate and question the world around him.
The design objects Moorer makes are animated and invested with a provocative agency aimed at seducing the audience/spectator's attention in particular ways changing from object to object. They aim to retain an emphasis by resisting convention through and deviating from the norm.
Moorer has worked on a variety of commissions and consultancy. His practice and output include designs for industry, bespoke and catwalk pieces, interior design objects for galleries, installation, performance, to short film as well as lectures and workshops on the creative process of conceptual and critical thinking.
His work has been exhibited internationally in places such as The Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, The Fashion Institute of Technology New York, Saatchi Gallery London and with the British Council and Design Museum London, and commissioned by companies, galleries and individuals.
Moorer is currently living and working in London and Course Leader for MA Footwear at the London College Fashion.
