TESTLAB 01 | Studio Jo Meesters | Eindhoven 18 - 26 October 2008
During Dutch Design Week 2008, Studio Jo Meesters presents Testlab. Testlab is about experiments and prototypes using discarded materials, exploring the possibilities of the materials and transforming them into new types of furniture.
Studio Jo Meesters creates concepts and products based on the key words of matter and traditional craftsmanship. The ongoing search for innovation in materials and techniques is the major drive of the design bureau, which is considered a laboratory for product concepts. A laboratory focused on the research of new ways of material handling and the exploration of the boundaries of the intersection of craftsmanship and mass production techniques.
The basic principle in Jo Meester’s work is sustainability. By integrating various aspects of craftsmanship, sophistication, and detailing, Meesters aims to imbue his projects and products with an emotional value. In this way, he emphasises his commitment to the creation and perception of a bond between object and user.
