Twin engine: introducing Thomas Eyck’s duet of new collections

Self-titled design ’publisher’ Thomas Eyck only commissions one or two designers a year to create new works, so his collections are always eagerly anticipated. This year, the Dutchman’s two new ranges on show at Spazio Rossana Orlandi are typically unusual.

Aldo Bakker’s ’Copper’ collection bears the designer’s fresh approach to traditional techniques like moulding, galvanising and lacquering. The streamlined pieces include a stool, watering can, saucepan, soy pourer and candle holder.

The playful ’Texelaar’ collection by Christien Meindertsma, consists of an ottoman in the form of a giant ball of string, and a chunkily knitted woollen rug, made with the help of a size 26 needle - which, we’re told, is rather large. Both pieces were produced using Dutch Texelaar wool.
