vanhoffontwerpen - leather
Thomas Eyck commissioned Dick van Hoff to design a series of products in leather. The collection consists of a chair, a daybed, a firewood bag and a brief case, bag and a lunch set. For this collection Dick van Hoff, founder of Vanhoffontwerpen, uses leather in a fresh and innovative way. He draws existing dogmas into question and offers new ways of going through our daily routine. As he calls it: “decelerate to accelerate”. The products invite you to refresh your mind: have a lie down on your daybed and on leaving the house take your bag and lunch box along to enjoy nature on the chair which sits you right down in the grass. The products have a striking relevance about them. The designs are archetypes that capture your heart, they are robust in shape with subtle detailing. ?The collection is produced in close collaboration with “De Buffel” leatherwork and “Kuperus & Gardenier” carpentry in the Netherlands.
