‘Next time when I meet Jorre I will bring a stool’, was my first thought when I met him last month in Zona Tortona during the Design Week in Milan. Luckily we found an opportunity to sit down and all my feelings of inadequacy varnished quickly when I found myself in a seating position.
2 meter long Jorre van Ast is the new creative director of Arco, dutch contemporary furniture company. He is also a part of the London-based OKAY Studio, a collective of ‘individual designers sharing a bit more then a workspace’.
Jorre was in Milan to launch some new Arco products at the Salone del Mobile, probably world’s largest furniture fair, which is located in Milan. He was also there for the evening events, where you can always catch up with your designer friends. I wonder how Jorre can handle his drink. People say that tall people can do well.
that’s how tall he is
