Ein holländisches Wohlgefühl

21 02 2014

It’s already a few months ago, but we want to share this beautiful setting we saw on the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, last Oktober. Floris Hovers showed in a cosy 3×3 meter square an overview of his color- and joyful work.

The personal descriptions of his products on his own website fit to the honest and clear forms of his furniture pieces. The ‘Plank-Series’ is for example based on an experiment to work with a limited material. Floris challenged himself to see if he would be able to produce a stool from only one board, in order to stay down-to-earth and keep being inventive. In combination with the typical Floris Hovers colors, the ‘Plank-Series’ developed into a very nice whole, with fine subtle details in the construction.

Next to furniture Floris also thought about the desires of kids and created two very cute toys. He designed a ‘DIY-bottleboat-kit’ i.a. inspired by his two daughters who played in the bathtub with empty shampoo-bottles, and little ‘default’ cardboard cars, which the kids can customize themselves. A drawing which Floris made to check out different color combinations is reproduced on an old letterpress, and also available in our shop. See the video below for a sneak peak of the production process.
