Droog Design is…

Droog Design is curating an exhibition of 80 designers and artists called Open Borders, that opens this week. To celebrate the French city of Lille hosting the European City of Culture 2004, Droog founders Renny Rammakers and Gijs Bakker invited designers, artists and architects to produce installations that blur the lines between creative disciplines. ‘It’s not just about shifting the borders between disciplines, it’s also encouraging participation from people coming to the exhibition. We want them to interact with what they see,’ Rammakers says. Porcelain pet bed, designed by Paolo Ulian, pictured left; Two of a Kind porcelain ring, by Frederik Roijé, right, are produced by Herbeau.
