Valentijn Rieb | Simoon van der Drift
Valentijn Rieb’s Chester-Block-Hocker is a complete transformation from the usual chesterfield hocker. He transformed the leather in the couch into wood and integrated a bouncing surface which gives it a soft touch and great material experience. The legs are made of leather instead of wood making the transformation complete. This couch is design with a smile. Nostalgia with a wink.
Simoon van der Drift draws inspiration from the skins and textures of animals and objects in nature. Here, she magnifies the skin and the texture of a fish. The overlapping wooden scales at the front side of the closet hide the drawers and create the illusion that it is a single piece.
