Patrick Norguet has designed Nef for EMU, a new collection in aluminium entirely inspired by the pleasure of being outdoors, the result of a skillful combination of eclectic style and “visual lightness”. The tubular frame is combined with a seat in pressed sheet metal. The interwoven polyester cords, with a grid created using aisi316 stainless steel clips, lends a natural feeling of comfort and warmth: the structure has generous dimensions that both protect the person seated and allow them to see and hear. The grid uses an innovative fastening system.
Nef is a diverse collection, both in terms of the type of materials used and the range of chairs in the series, including models for the dining room and lounge, with backrests at different heights. Cushions and low tables soon will complete the series.
Inspired by the quality of industrial PVC cloth, Visser & Meijwaard developed Truecolors. The collection consists of a series of benches, stools and cabinets made from this strong cloth.
About Visser & Meijwaard
Visser & Meijwaard is a design studio by Steven Visser (1985) and Vera Meijwaard (1988) founded in 2013 in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The designer duo creates distinct but minimalistic products of which versatile materials and clear shapes constitute the essence.

After they graduated in July 2012, he with a collection of gentleman’s accessories, she with a collection of very feminine high heels, the idea arose to start a label together.
