7840 Pillow

"Am very very happy with the banks series Pillow. An restrained design all the way in line with the cubist design history of Gelderland. And in addition with very many opportunities to put together what you need. Actually, you can endlessly combine. Each part of the bank has a separate cover; thereby you can also play with different colors in upholstery within 1 element. Only if you want of course; most of us are just looking for a nice straight forward comfortable sofa and no adventures. And there is nothing wrong with that ".

About Lex Pott (1985)

Lex Pott uses materials found in nature as his primary materials. Tables and racks are created as a result of combining the original structure of a tree with its industrial by-products. The composition of organic and symmetrical forms challenges the binary gap between nature and culture that underlies traditional design. It also reveals the biological origin of many industrially produced items. Pott brings design back to nature.  In his work, he returns to the origins of the material and uses most of them: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their essence.

Lex Pott's studio is in Rotterdam. He graduated laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven. "In the products of my hand, you can always tell from which materials they are made, under what conditions, and with what techniques they were produced. As a designer, I'm not so concerned with styling. I would rather look at what a material does, and is. Non-design is a movement. This movement is all about purity, about traceability of the product. It's a broader trend. Look at what's happening with food now. People no longer want to be treated like mass consumers. They go for quality, love and attention".
