‘Something new for the home: our organically shaped seating elements, inspired by the magic of the circus. Roderick Vos: ‘Ever since I was a child this magical world has made a profound impression on me, because of the colourful shapes and attributes.’ Claire Vos: ‘The graphic patterns I saw there when I was a child, the lozenge patterns, suddenly became an inspiration for the BimBom.’ When we started developing the seats, things simply fell into place. The mirrored triangular shapes form a kind of lozenge. The different shades and decorative stitching turn these seating elements into a true ode to the circus.’
‘The circus represents aesthetics and perfection. Every tableau is a story that tells itself. The same applies to our collaboration with Design on Stock. Because a design won’t be good unless you can immediately feel AND see that it makes sense. Designing means practising, practising, and more practising. The BimBom series is our personal ode to the circus. Because, much like being in the circus, being a designer is not a job, it’s a life.’ BIMBOM available in September 2014 through our onlineshop.
