IÂ´ve met a lot people last week during milan design week. I also had the chance to do a drawn interview with ronan bouroullec, shay and yeal from raw edges, pieke bergmans, piet hein eek and some more.
I travelled with the bus from milan back to maastricht, nl. when I got off the bus I had to walk home in the rain. unfortunatly my bag isnÂ´t that waterproof. all drawings got wet. after 2 days of little frustrations about this misfortune IÂ´ve decided to publish them anyway. I mean, it happend and I canÂ´t change it…
‘remeditate’ is inspired by the medical world – this is a series of items by italian studio ctrlzak at the salonesatellite.
rotterdam-based studio makkink & bey has launched ‘house of furniture parts’ for droog. it is a cnc cutted house with walls of furniture parts which come out and can be easily assembled. a house for everybody who has enough space in their livingroom : )
