Last year I wrote a post about a Dutch design duo that I hugely admire, Meesters-vanderPark. A little while ago the duo decided to follow their own path..resulting in some amazing work by Marije van der Park and by Jo Meesters like these vessels in the image, called PULP. PULP is a collection of vessels made entirely out of paper pulp using discarded vessels as a mould. The collection started as a research searching for alternative materials made out of paper waste. By combining other materials with pulp such as epoxy and polyurethane , a new material is born with it’s own characteristics leading to a series of vessels made out of paper that can hold water.I think they are amazing, although the black can be a bit much at first,but picture them in a clean, white and
basic setting...they will look incredible!
A design which I just have to show you as well is the table called, Reshaping Wood. A collaboration between Jo Meesters and Marije van der Park. In search of innovation within traditional crafts the table was born. Marije and Jo used a water jet cutting technology and traditional woodwork to create this beautiful table. Here you can find Jo Meesters his website and of course you can email him for any information require.
