The architecture firm Onix, spatial designer Frank Havermans, textile designer Claudy Jongstra, fashion designer Alexander van Slobbe and industrial designer Hella Jongerius share a common quest to imbue their work with unexpected meaning derived from consideration of local culture and context, rediscovery of traditional craft, use of quotidian materials and a fascination with chance and improvisation. This volume includes illustrations by Yke Schotten, photographs by Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm and texts by Roemer van Toorn, Joost Grootens and Louise Schouwenberg.
