They feature Joris Laarman whose Bone Chair became almost instantly famous.
Joris Laarman was born in Borculo, The Netherlands in 1979.
He started his education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arnhem, after which he attended the Design Academy, Eindhoven. Laarman graduated with cum laude in 2003. His graduation piece, the ‘Heatwave’ concrete radiator brought him a lot of media attention. This rococo piece is now produced by Droog Design in the Netherlands, and has been exhibited world-wide.
Later he established his own studio in Utrecht in an attempt to combine innovation, aesthetics, curiosity, and freedom. It concentrates on architectural interventions and product design with a poetic kind of engineering. Next to a collection of highly unique products Laarman works for several well-known international design companies and galleries. He recently contributed in articles and seminars for Domus magazine and has been a guest teacher at European universities as well as the Architectural Association (AA) in London and the Design Academy Eindhoven in The Netherlands.
