Vondel Verses

February 22, 2009


Vondel Verses, a set of designs for a kiosk, a park bench and a lamp post, won a competition to design new lighting and furniture for the Vondelpark in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Each design contains a different organic motif such as birds in the frame of the bench. The furniture is made from cast iron and painted black.

The concept will be extended to other items, such as drinking fountains, signposts and litter bins, and will gradually replace existing furniture in the park from 2010 onwards.

I like the birds on the lamp so much although it’s really none functional unless it scares away real birds…

Based on a see-saw design, the rocker features a curved upper surface that comes lined with sturdy rigged upholstery and back rests on diagonally opposite ends.

Tubo Chair

September 5, 2008




“Designed to be part of different scenarios, such as breakfast in a garden, dinner on a loft, or even in a bathroom, to help recovery patients to take a bath.
Tubo is a collection of eight tubular furniture made of stainless steel which because of their physical structure perform perfectly in outdoors and indoors situations.

This table and seats were designed with a single line, which has a beginning and an end, and without knowing the difference; it is never broken, giving form to the entire Tubo Collection.”
