A little video about Amsterdam’s infamous design collective, ‘Droog’ founded by Gijs Bakker and Renny Ramakers. Droog became an international name when they were nominated as the surprise hit of the Milan Furniture Salon back in 1993. Several on the items displayed in Milan; such as Tejo Remy’s Chest of Drawers comprised of found drawers united by cord, and Rody Graumans’ Chandelier made from 85 light bulbs; are today considered design icons. Working and re-working found, recycled objects and everyday items the firm is known for its humane approach to design and unmistakable wit. Do put Droog on your design travel itinerary.
