Here, There, Everywhere – book


Edited by Renny Ramakers and Agata Jaworska

With essays, conversations and talks by David Allin, Jurgen Bey, Koert Debeuf, Theo Deutinger, Greg Lindsay, Winy Maas, Justin McGuirk, Heleen Mees, Renny Ramakers, Charles Renfro, Wouter Vanstiphout and Daniel van der Velden.

The world is intertwined. What happens here, might be relevant there and could resonate everywhere. Initiated by cofounder and director of design company Droog, Renny Ramakers, Droog Lab scans the world for relevant topics and patterns, seeking the broader design relevance of local findings.

Here, There, Everywhere explores the value of dead stock, of downloadable design, of copying as a design method, of a self-invented service mentality typical of Manhattan, of the lack of an explicit national identity inherent to Belgium, of the Russian love for bling, of an alternative economy where materials become more expensive, and more.

From the future of nomadic living to imaginary brands, economic zones and societies, this book is a snapshot of realistic and imaginative findings by Droog Lab in collaboration with designers, architects and thinkers including Winy Maas, Metahaven, Jurgen Bey, Richard Hutten, Theo Deutinger, Mieke Gerritzen, Erik Kessels, Bas Princen, Diller Scofidio + Renfro and others.

about the designer

Studio Droog

Founded in 2011 by Renny Ramakers, Studio Droog is an Amsterdam based studio that develops the Droog brand through a range of furniture, accessories and lighting products. The studio uses a carefully selected team of in-house designers, dedicated to designing quality products that change your experience of daily life. The studio is committed to delivering useful products with a strong identity. We believe that utility does not have to come at the expense of fantasy. Every piece in the studio’s collection begins with a radical re-think of a particular item and the way that it can be used. Each product is unique and tells a story of its own, but all share a strong emphasis on both function and fiction.
