Remko Verhaagen Launches the Bed and Bunker Line

A bunker restoration initiative for a structure along the Dutch coast has been launched.

World War II left many "remnants" along the 5000-kilometer Atlantic Wall. A not-for-profit organization — Stelling 33 Foundation, has set out to see if it can redirect some of the structures to serve a modern purpose. In collaboration with Remko Verhaagen, the collective attempts to raise funds for a bunker restoration initiative.

Cleverly dubbed 'Bed and Bunker,' the silhouettes of the furniture are rather paired-back. Intentionally, Remko Verhaagen focused on recreating the aesthetic merits of items — chairs, tables, double beds and more, from the "standardized German designs that were once used to fit-out the bunkers."

The aim is to reuse the spaces for holiday retreats and artistic residency.
