    Pete says:
  • funky parents

    VIP says:
  • i don’t understand his furniture and i don’t understand why there is a picture of him with his father. so what if he’s a painter and has a funky atelier

    mrnj says:
  • Great job Bram !

    Alain Gilles says:
  • I like your approach to functional storage and art combined.
    I especially like the picture of you with your Father.

    mrnj may understand when older…

  • Free Form Constructural Realism – you are a patronising one aren’t you?

    As for the work, it’s ok. No better than some degree show work, but cos it’s been launched in the world of art/design everyone goes mad for it. What an odd industry it is at the moment.

    Oh, and as for the photo of him with his dad – what relevance to the work and the story? It shows a creatvie space, but no work in development or anything that means it should be included in a story on the “designer of the year.”

    mook says:
  • I guess designboom has included it to show the cultural background of bram boo. Of course if his father would work in a post office then they might have published his funky grandma.
