The famous pop-art paintings of comic book panels by Lichtenstein were used as a source of inspiration to create the ‘BANG’ table. Instead of making references to the mass-produced nature of popular culture, Reinier Bosch makes a reference to pop-art itself by creating a unique and functional aesthetic item.

Adopting a democratic approach to design, Reinier Bosch incorporates a broad swath of materials and influences in his objects, which playfully and honestly engage the materials and their many associations and forms. Common items in his work include cardboard, glass, Plexiglas, and sheet metal, which was one of the first materials that inspired him while spending time at his father’s boatyard. His design sensibility, which merges high and low cultural references, is perhaps best exemplified by pieces such as Bang (2014), a table whose support structure is a yellow-colored series of letters spelling out the work’s title. The instance of onomatopoeia recalls both the fine art of Roy Lichtenstein as well as the more lowbrow popular imagery that inspired 1960s Pop Art.
