Kettal – Bob
Designed by Hella Jongerius
For Kettal, Hella Jongerius designed a club garden set named BOB, a reinterpretation of the typical garden club chair. The aluminum frame has a sturdy dark look from the front but surprises at the back with an elegant, light construction. The seating is formed of soft and voluminous ribs which are accented with visible stitching. Winded yarn is used for the detailing of the armrests and on the handles of the BOB footstool and side table.
About HELLA JONGERIUS
Hella Jongerius has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary. After graduating Eindhoven Design Academy, she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own projects and projects for Maharam, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, and Vitra. Her work has been shown at museums and the best galleries.
|Marcel Wanders: The Design Maverick|
|Tags: Marcel Wanders, Designer|
|7 March 2011
Dutch designer Marcel Wanders is celebrated for his wit, humour and flamboyance. But his ultimate goal is to produce works that endure.
(Photo credited to Kettal. Marcel Wanders for Kettal, Atmosphere Collection)
It’s easy to strike Marcel Wanders off as a sensationalist. His Airborne Snotty series of vases, for instance, are modelled on three-dimensional scans of airborne mucus expelled during a sneeze - not quite the subject of polite conversation. Then there are the provocative advertising campaigns for Moooi, a studio he set up in 2001, featuring nude male and female models in acrobatic positions: swinging from chandeliers, doing splits atop sofas, or balancing pieces of furniture on their limbs. It’s not that Wanders craves attention. Rather, he derives great pleasure from seeing his works elicit a response from the public.
Listen to a snippet of our interview with the design maverick:
About Marcel Wanders
The 2007 Visionary Award winning artist of the New York Museum of Arts and Design. Born in the Netherlands, he is one of the most significant designers on the international stage. He has been awarded numerous prizes and his designs have been selected by the most important design collections in the world, such as MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, and the V&A Museum in London.
Magical Fairy Outdoors: Kettal - Atmosphere
Designed by Marcel Wanders
Kettal Atmosphere is a project that conveys all of the magic and energy of its creator, Marcel Wanders. Inspired by early-century pavilions, Kettal Atmosphere is an enveloping collection where light, sound and shape combine to create a unique atmosphere and lifestyle. The system consists of a totally configurable aluminium pavilion and contemporary
furniture set inspired by bygone days.
Cappellini - Wanders' Tulip Armchair
Designed by Marcel Wanders
Marcel Wanders and Cappellini confirm that designing is also and fundamentally about having fun: Wanders’ Tulip Armchair is an important product, but fresh and happy, a reinterpretation of the lengthened and oversized dimensions of the classic armchair. Mimicking the stem of a flower, a shiny revolving base in dark varnished metal provides support.
