During a travel in Tibet, red
 boxes were painted outdoors.
Due to this the surrounding was colored with red. That idea of object and background is used in this range, a shape that’s seems to melt. The object and its surrounding is fused.
This process is as fluid as the melting of the bronze of the foundery where the piece is made. The object is made as one piece. Finished high polished.
Important in this process is the fluidity of the material and the love what is put in it both by craftsmen and designer.

About Reinier Bosch

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.

Dutch, b. 1980, Groningen, Netherlands, based in Amsterdam, Netherlands
