IXXI x Rijksmuseum Challenge

IXXI x Rijksmuseum Challenge

We teamed up with the Rijksmuseum to create our first design challenge ever: the Rijksmuseum 2.0 challenge. We challenged designers worldwide to create their own interpretation of a masterpiece from the museum's iconic collection. With submissions flooding in from all over the globe, our creative pulses quickened. From an abstract rendition of the "Threatened Swan" to a modern make-over that has been one of our top choices for years: the "Milkmaid 21st Century". In this bestseller by Paste in Place, the classic 'Milkmaid' becomes a modern barista serving your coffee. Curious? Discover all reimagined art classics:

IXXI x Van Gogh Museum Challenge

In 2022, we launched yet another challenge, this time partnering with the Van Gogh Museum. Our goal? To offer designers worldwide a platform, but with an enticing twist. On top of earning a permanent spot in the prestigious Van Gogh 21st Century collection, the three winning designs would also find a home as IXXI artworks within the walls of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Picture it - the finest remakes of Van Gogh's masterpieces hanging alongside his original classics!

Fun fact: to celebrate this Challenge, we transformed our office into a makeshift IXXI Museum for a day, showcasing striking images from the Van Gogh 21st Century collection. Some of these Van Gogh remakes still grace our walls today because we simply can't get enough of them! Take a look yourself:
