Over the years I designed many pieces of furniture that were extremely economic in the use of material. The sizes of standard sheets of MDF or laminated sheets of plywood defined folding tables or chairs. Tables ended up with unusual sizes since it allowed seats with it and minimum off-cuts. These things you do not always see as soon as the design is finished, hence the animations made for the exhibition Rood als tomaat, geel als citroen in Museum Valkhof Nijmegen in 2020.
Tête à Tête set is made from recycled plastic in 1997. It was the first design in the Ordinairy Furniture Collection and has become a classic in the past decades.The components of all the Ordinairy Furniture sets are made of standard poles and planks have been carefully callculated so there is as little wast as possible.See more on Ordinairy Furniture sets
