Beautiful discovery made in the Dutch designer section at the Milan fair, Kocowisch is a Dutch design studio, based in Utrecht. He looks to explore, develop and maintain unique timeless high end products of great quality. Their first collection “Kocohedron” is a piece of mathematical beauty. Elaborated with 5 geometric shapes, she comes in 3 sizes and various colours, gold, copper, chrome or painted. The collection is hand made and manufactured in the Netherlands. We loved the diffused warm lighting and the sober and very contemporary shapes. Another advantage is that these lamps may be hung using pretty coloured strings or they can be placed on the floor…
We met this young designer, Jolanda Van Goor at the Oode Galery in Amsterdam and at the Milan Salon. She was displaying her pieces in a very nice space, surely a shed or warehouse… with other young talents. A couple of words about Jolanda: she’s young warm girl, open and very talented, regarding her creations, she revealed to us her latest collection “Contorno” with lots of passion. They are small tables easy to fit in small spaces, the materials are superb, the contours are made out of sharp steel and the surface is made out of copper or bronze, an artisanal conception that’s functional and unique, everything that we love! She also created other wooden furniture embellished with wool or with tissue, chairs, libraries. Another one our favourite pieces of hers: her pretty lamps “lighten up” where she also uses copper. The whole is very Dutch Touch !
Oliver van Herp&Sanders Wassink – Student of design Academy Eindhoven – Product 3D
Meeting in Milan with Olivier, a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven, which explains its creation :
Adaptive manufacturing is an ongoing experimenting by oliver van Herpt and Sander Wassink in which they research the relation between the machine and it’s context. They decided to design scripts that distill shapes and textures from external phenomenon. The software then translates this external information measured by sensors into specific realtime behaviors of the printer. You could call it a sensory machine that feels it’s environment and all of it’s output becomes a real-time document of a specific time, location or raw material.
