The Conga Bar is designed by Thomas Althaus and manufactured by Schönbuch, it was launched 2011. Finished in high-gloss in a huge range of lovely colors. The Conga series have grown since 2011, nowadays the Conga circular chest of drawers is also available. Less glamorous than a bar, but still pretty nice.

Dutch Designers Re-invent The Chair

Dutch Designers Re-invent The Chair

What do the Red and Blue chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1918, The Wassily chair, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 and the Lounge chair and ottoman designed by Eames in 1959, have in common, except for the fact they are designed in the 20th century? Well, these design icons have all been re-invented by Dutch Designers. Just that.

Red and Blue Chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1917. Wassily Chair, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 (currently produced by Knoll). Lounge chair and ottoman designed by Eames in 1959. (currently produced by Herman Miller)

Take off Your Shoes

In the world of Dutch Design there is this complex way of presenting. Almost every designer works with more than one collective, organisation, experiment, project, brand, manufacturer, sponsor, curator and god knows what else, besides having their own toko, (that means shop in Bahasa) which is almost always named after themselves, adding the word ‘studio’ either in front or after the designer’s given name.
