VIVID Gallery presents:

Arnout Visser

November 19th 2006 until January 7th 2007

Since 1991, Arnout Visser has worked as a commissioned designer who also developed his own collection within the various disciplines of product design, furniture and interior design.

The design is as basic and, as tense as it gets. Always, the first part of his design process is based in science and techniques which include an optical enlargement, light conduction, weight, the Law of Archimedes, balance, movement: Concept is form! Materials are reused, and revived.Visser combines found objects with science, searching for new forms.

From the beginning of Droog Design, Visser is involved with this initiative. At this moment he is the best represented designer for Droog

In 2000 Arnout started visiting Kenia. Here he makes series of designs with a different attitude and ethics, developed in a glass workshop in Kitengela, Kenya.
Visser calls this project Bushglass and with a formal renewal of craft-the combination of craft skills, technical possibilities, recycled materials, and artistic qualities he brings together two worlds that have no knowledge about each other

The VIVID exhibition shows for the first time an overview of the lively work of Arnout Visser. You see the 'laboratory' glassware for Droog but also a lot of sculptural pieces from Africa.
