The Joost van Bleiswijk 'Collage' furniture series makes light of the handy artist's chronic insomnia. After failing to fall asleep during the late hours of the night, the artist spent countless hours doodling and sketching a series of illustrated motifs on paper.
These endless doodles have become the medium for his latest collection of illustrated furnishings that resemble artistic graffiti sculptures. The Dutch designer has developed a scratch technique that reveals sketchy strokes when applied on a variety of furnishings and objects in the collection.
From tables and benches to industrial illuminators and vintage stoves, these artful furnishings by Joost van Bleiswijk are a bold and creative cultivation that makes light in the designer's sleep condition.
