Today the long awaited furniture elements arrived in the Mr. Upside gallery! Two cabinets, two presentation blocks and a textiles rack are all made of underlayment. This untreated wood give the fairly large home office / gallery not only a more natural feel but the two cabinets also function as room dividers.
The room dividers are part of our plans to change the function of our 80m2 home office. The two cabinets are based on wheels so they can be easily pushed to any position in the room. They also provide massive storage space for all kinds of stuff you don't want to show the people walking by.
Textile studio and popup gallery
The room previously functioned as a too large home office and sometimes as a bicylce storage, pop-up gallery and also as an extension to our garden shed. Now the cabinets nicely divide the room in a small gallery and the textile studio Janette needs to make her products.
&hout furniture craftsman
The furniture was made by Dutch, Rotterdam based furniture maker and interior designer Lennard Eijkman of &Hout. "To keep my work interesting and to keep developing myself, I mainly focus on businesses and entrepeneurs with original and fresh ideas' Lennard described on his website.
After a small brainstorm session on the future plans of the room, Janette immediately took the role of project manager and art director of this interior project. Because of my unlimited confidence in Janette, my own busy schedule and the fact that Janette is passionate about interior and product design, I did not have any contact with Lennard untill today. But as he walked through the door this afternoon I met a very relaxed, experienced and well mannered artisan and craftsman.
Attention to detail
The furniture pieces are all very well build, with attention to detail and solid. We are extremely happy to have the ability to have commisioned such a project. And get the unique furniture delivered, ofcourse, :)
