We loved having guests again in our studio and showroom during last weekend’s GLUE event. Thank you all for visiting Cocoon House and for sharing your enthusiasm!
Sander Reijgers is fascinated by the material and the act. Unstirred, he applies the layers of paint and is only limited by time (the paint has to dry interim) and by the shape the paint takes. Reijgers patiently follows this process and is almost subject to his own work. Painter Sander Reijgers will exhibit his work at GLUE Amsterdam at Cocoon House.Lees verder “Painter Sander Reijgers at the GLUE Amsterdam Design Route 2020”
Product designer Alexandra Izeboud has a fascination for the aesthetic and technical properties of materials. The materials that are used, work together in ultra minimalistic designs that are functional, but also allow for the imagination to run wild. During GLUE, she presents her minimalistic OFFSET bookcase and the SUNLIGHT, an interactive lighting object that recreates the versatile character of actual sunlight. Designs that are made for the attentive and curious mind.Lees verder “Alexandra Izeboud shows her work at GLUE Design Route in Cocoon House”
