Jo Meesters TFP

During the ICFF, The Future Perfect in Brooklyn will present six installations from six global talents including Sarah Cihat, Committee, Esque Design, 45 Kilo & Kiel Mead, Jo Meesters and Bodo Sperlein.

Studio Jo Meesters will be showcasing an installation consisting of three products, Ornamental Inheritance, PULP Vessels and Reshaping Wood Version 2.0

Reshaping Wood : In search of innovation within traditional crafts Reshaping Wood is born from a research project based on the possibilities of combining traditional crafts with technological and industrial production methods. This woodwork inspired table is fabricated combining CNC cutting technology and traditional woodwork.

PULP : A collection of vessels made entirely out of paper pulp using discarded vessels as a mould. The collection started as a research searching for alternative materials made out of paper waste.

Ornamental Inheritance : a collection of sandblasted used ceramics combining contemporary symbols such as airplanes, nature and architecture. In combination with traditional delfware ornaments, a new landscape arises linking the old with the new.

This exhibition in New York during the ICFF was made possible with the support of the Netherlands Foundation for visual arts, design and architecture, NV Rede, The City of Eindhoven and BY:AMT.
