The 10 Most Desired Objects from Design Miami/
The Lagoon dining table and the Champagne chairs are the new successors resulting from the melting series.
The Champagne chairs have a poetic approach. They reveal the bustling dinner of the previous evening, where chapagne was spilled on the seats of the chairs.
The Melting series is a series of furniture that seems to melt. The objects are made as one piece. Finished high polished.

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.
