‘odds & ends, bits & pieces’ stool
‘odds & ends, bits & pieces’ by netherland studio jo meesters is a part of the TESTLAB,
an ongoing experimental project about rejuvenating and reusing discarded material.
here the collection consists of four furniture pieces made entirely out of 34 discarded
wooden beams and 16 leftover blankets. the making of these pieces are based on
upholstering and weaving techniques that help to create soft variations of everyday objects.

during milan design week 2010, the furniture collection from ‘odds & ends, bits & pieces’
will be available for viewing as part of dutch invertuals, a multidisciplinary collective
of independent designers at the verger store between april 14-19, 2010.
dutch invertuals brings together designers of various backgrounds ranging from product,
graphic, food, spatial, fashion to material design. in collaboration with verger, these former
design academy graduates will take familiar materials out of their usual context and put
them to use in an uncommon and, therefore, surrealistic way. the dutch invertuals includes
daphna isaacs, EDHV, jon stam, laurens manders, mieke meijer, studio jo meesters,
raw color and verger.
