on the occasion of dutch design week 2013, bo reudler is debuting new furniture pieces to accompany his previous ‘bamboo windsor series’ and ‘haute bamboo series’. conceived in collaboration with olav bruin (of 24H architecture), the latest offerings include the bamboo windsor coffee table and settee, and new colors of the bamboo windsor chair, alongside an haute bamboo lamp.

the ‘bamboo windsor chair’ was first presented as the winner of the 2012 TIFF award competition. it later made its official debut to the public at the 2012 london design festival which designbom published here.

in addition to the recent evolution of bamboo furniture, bo reudler is presenting the ‘raw comfort chair’, a seating object which is designed from only flat rectangular pieces and whose beauty is expressed through the asymmetry of its components which gives the chair its random and organic form.

  • Bravo! These are truly an achievement using raw bamboo culms & stems. A few years ago I spent best part of a year attempting to develop bamboo furniture in North Thailand – it is a far more challenging material to work with than is often realized. I gave up… So glad Mr Reudler didn’t!! These are terrific, iconic products mixing the best of East and West :).
