Saved by Droog

Thursday, 22 April 2010 by Irene Hoofs

Saved by Droog …. or you could say ‘Before and After’ a trend that has been brought to a higher level in terms of design by Droog. Saved by Droog was presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2010 last week.
The Dutch design company acquired 5135 items, ranging from 1 water cooler,  1 dining table, 80 folding chairs to 2500 handkerchiefs and invited 14 well-known designers to consider these items as raw material for creative re-interpretation.

And my favorites are::
1~ the Mouth-watering spoon…a wooden spoon with a mouth-watering coating by eating designer Marije Vogelzang.


2~ Read before you eat... a personal message from Marian Bantjes to your table.

3~ Glass arrangement…a still life centre-piece by Atelier Remy & Veenhuizen.


4~ Daily handkerchief… handkerchiefs are embroidered with selected articles from 30 days by Studio Makkink & Bey.
5~ 100 Blue containers... none of the designers picked these items…so they were flock-coated in blue … nice DIY idea perhaps for you to try at home too.

And last but not least I thought the Wannabe mirror by Minale – Maeda is just a brilliant idea! {All photographs by Stefanie Grät}
