it all started in with a gymnasts vault, with its innate animal-like features and quirky posture. guided by the distinctive shape and typical construction, visser & meijwaard created the ‘truecolors’ collection. the range includes a bench, stool, barstool, bar bench, cabinet, and credenza made with industrial-grade PVC cloth on an oak frame.

the zipper, prominent in all the products, is the line’s signature aesthetic. with both technical and visual importance, the component sets the design apart. for transport, legs can be removed along with the cushion. by cleverly enlarging and incorporating details, the designers are able to create a level of versatility in both color and function. ‘truecolors’ debuted during milan design week 2015
