dressed with fantasy, a new environment for minimalism
Rijksmuseum: Rijksstudio m2
Inspired by the rich collections of the Rijksmuseum, Droog presented in 2014 at the Salone del Mobile Milan a setting for a studio – entrance, bedroom, kitchen, living and dining. Rijksstudio m2 is a setting for a studio in which the richness of the Rijksmuseum collection resonates in walls and ceilings. 18th-century tapestry is transformed into wallpaper, a painting with birds and clouds is part of a reflective gradient wall in the bedroom and 17th-century landscape paintings are animated. The sober furniture in the space forms a sharp contrast with this elaborate treatment, but is just as much inspired by the Rijksmuseum collection. The pieces reflect the furniture as depicted in homely settings in famous paintings. A bathtub, a daybed, a writing desk, a mirror, a night stand, and a candle holder are all carefully executed in wood and leather in a new appearance. Minimalism in a new environment dressed with fantasy!
