Petrol Heat Jug - Zuiderzee Museum



Drawing inspiration from historical exhibits in the Zuiderzee Museum, Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk created a series of present-day “still lifes” brimming with references to the past. In a collaborative project with the Royal Tichelaar Makkum ceramics factory, she made seven unique ensembles, each consisting of a tulipwood piece of furniture, fine textiles, and gold-plated ceramic objects—such as this striking Petrol Heat Jug. The works’ images, patterns, and materials are all inspired by the rich history of the Zuiderzee area, but translated to the here and now.

Van Eijk grew up in a small city in the Netherlands, immersed in nature, daydreaming, and drawing. Today she is a leading voice in Dutch design. During her studies at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, she met her future partner, Joost van Bleiswijk, another major contributor to contemporary Dutch design. Known for her signature whimsical, colorful, lyrical style, van Eijk works across media, from textiles, ceramics, and glasswork to furniture and installation. Van Eijk’s work can be found in international museums, galleries, fairs, and private collections. She’s collaborated with brands such as Hermès, Saint-Louis, 1882 Ltd, MOOOI, Häagen-Dazs, Serax, Bernhardt Design, and Nodus.
