Together with Berend Zewuster, the octrooi holder of all the ADO designs, we developed a true replica of one ADO model. Produced at a sheltered workshop in the same spirit; as a reintegration project. It was for sale at the museum shop and a great item for dads to make with their sons!
When does a logo obtain relevance to space, time and the public? Where does the tension between autonomous and applied craftmanship transform into a fuse between artistic disciplines? What does this need?
These questions have been guiding in the design process of Eloi Koster, who was asked by dental practice Sanadens to design a corporate identity. Can a corporate identity have more value than just an applied label?
Eloi sought collaboration with glass artist Menno Jonker. The designer, artist and dentists discovered in dialogue that they give great importance to the holistic approach in their work; everything is interconnected and cannot be perceived separately. This is reflected in the glass object; the holistic synergy made perceptible. Subtle contrast in colors.
A piece of furniture with a strong autonomous character. 'twee emmertjes water halen' plays with the viewer and the desire to give meaning to the object. An abstract swivel carrier is crafted for two standard construction buckets. As a reference to the past in which carring water belonged to a daily task this object asks to give it a new meaning.
