Meeting “on the go” with Richard Hutten at Gispen stand inside Superstudio Piu ,Via Tortona. Hutten, art director of Gispen, offers us his vision of design and shows us the new products presented by the Dutch company at Design Week during the Salone del Mobile.
1Fotomuseum Table, Fotomuseum Lamp.Designer: Richard Hutten
Richard was commisioned to design the interior of the Fotomuseum in Rotterdam, which he did in his famous playfull way. The Fotomuseum Table is perfect for use in bars and restaurants, but also in small corners at home. The Fotomuseum Lamp gives an industrial yet playful touch to every space where a down light is needed.
2Hold on. Designer: Xavier Lust
Structures reduced to the essential, simplicity of drawing and economy of means characterize this collection composed of lacquered steel modules that can be, according to their dimensions, working surfaces, console tables or shelves. The Hold on modules are easily fixed on any type of wall thanks to their vertical supports resting on the ground.
3TST Sofa.Designer: Michael Young
The “TST Sofa” is quite personal and was designed for Richard Hutten, an old friend and collaborator of many years now. It is hard at times to say how this was inspired as in many ways it was “felt”, it is a product of collective thought and absorption of how I feel about objectivity in the Netherlands, it’s got function, but it’s not art – I wanted to give my abstract a questioning, a commercial expressive object with good ergonomics.
