Pode Magazine
10 / 12 / 2018

For our studio it is truly fun being art directors for Dutch brand Pode. 

We started this job in 2015. Now the brand is surprising, fresh and colourful while remaining affordable. We find that very important. A complete lifestyle collection that you can use to furnish your entire living room. To achieve this, we work with experienced, reputable designers who supply refreshing, innovative creations, time after time. Our Art Directorship plays a special role. We keep trying to give the Pode collection its entirely special identity, in colour, style and design. Now the new magazine No 5 is out, and we are very proud of the end-result!

Doodle Vase
05 / 11 / 2018

Our iconic MaMa vase design created in 1999, is quite a large ceramic object. So why not create a smaller vase for the existing collection? I made a quick sketch and the 3d printed figure-like endresult almost looked like a Disney cartoon drawing coming to ‘life’. That’s why I called this design ‘Doodle’, meaning a simple scribble. The charming shape looks promising and quite simple; but the consumer has no idea how many different skills a Cor Unum artisan needs to control the processes involved from working the liquid clay to a wonderful finished piece. And there is more good news: the public now are keen to buy ceramics again. After the 20 th century of ‘plastics & mass production’, the hand made product in the 21 st century is valued again! Cor Unum products feel real and authentic.The Doodle vase will be introduced at the beginning of 2019. Thank you, Marlies Crooijmans from Fabrique Ceramique & Lotte Landsheer from Cor Unum!

Textiles & More
30 / 09 / 2018

Claire Vos; ' for this new collection introduced by Dutch brand Textiles & More, our studio was able to work with a different technology. Transfer sublimation (printing on fabrics) has much more advantages because it is much easier to create a clear gradient on the textile. The weaving technology has much more restrictions. With this printing technique we were more or less inspired by airbrush images. We created depth and dimension to the curtain using an optical effect. This was more or less the theme for this collection. These four prints called Rain, Knit, Clan & Paperclip are realized in several qualities in fabric, and are available from voile to satin. Suitable for projects such as hotels, offices and healthcare, as well as residential homes.'

It's in the genes
27 / 05 / 2018

So great to find a design made in 1981 by my father Henk Vos for Dutch Company Holborn published by DESIGNBOOM. It’s still a beauty!

DOCUBITE designed a series of animated gifs as a sort of rebuttal to the question by apple. ‘I am a computer: icons of beige’ sees 16 classics from the golden age of personal computing turned into dynamic compositions. maybe they don’t have the highest speeds or graphic capabilities, but who cares? they’re awesome. ‘I am a computer’ celebrates the visual character of desktop computing machines from a colourless period in industrial design,’ docubyte explains.

Wally, a cartoonish ceramic tablelight
04 / 04 / 2018

Most of our design projects are commissioned. But sometimes we feel the urge to create something by ourselves because we simply want to. In our previous project we were creating hexagon shaped tiles. The shade, lines and reflection on these tiles made us realize that we could use this concept for a light object . Primary linear forms do very well especially when the reflected light reveals the beauty of a shape.  In this case an odd but charming looking  ceramic table light. Wally will be introduced bij Cor Unum this coming year in 2019. Welcome, Wally!
