Reinier Bosch (b.1980 Groningen, The Netherlands) emerged as the top- graduating student from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2007, winning as well the prestigious Melkweg Prize (Milky Way Prize), also named by Wallpaper MagazineTM as the second most promising upcoming design talent in the world in 2008.
His works are layered, in the composition, and arrangement of materials as well as in the stories they tell. The observation of different cultures, the use of common materials, and the continuous references to everyday life, are redundant elements within his production. Bosch observes life in different cultures and translates what he experiences into his creative process.
Reinier’s main source of inspiration comes from his travels, Italy, China, Tibet, Turkey etc. wandering in the streets of an unknown city, exploring surroundings and behaviours, he observes details and transforms everyday objects into precious pieces of collectible design. All of Reinier Bosch works share the same goal: showing the magnificence of life.
An unevenness or flaw in an object also invites a response from the viewer – both beauty and imperfections lead to contemplation and a widening of consciousness. Reinier Bosch would like to trigger this in the viewer, and to create a space for enjoyment of both the material qualities of the objects and the joy of using something physically in harmony with its energy.
