Classicon has from its inception aspired not only to offer pieces by established figures such as Eileen Gray and Eckart Muthesius, but also to foster contemporary design and to present selected examples in its program. Naturally, the models chosen must display the kind of quality and advanced form that earns them the designation “classic”. That’s why ClassiCon is always open to new design ideas.
The two designers Emiel Vaessen (1958) en Gert Jan Vogel (1960) met at the Academy of Arts and Design in Rotterdam. In 1985 they started together the design agency Duo Design. Duo Design specializes in design, development and production of its own line of interior products.Simplicity of design, subtle details and the application of high quality materials lend the products an unmistakable ¨duodesign¨ signature.The collection is sold in a large number of countries and various designs from Duo Design are included in the collections of museums of modern art and design.
Normann Copenhagen is a way of living - a mindset. We love to challenge the conventional design rules. This is why you will find traditional materials put into untraditional use such as a Stone Hook made of Icelandic stones, a vase made out of silicon and last but not least a dog made out of plastic.
KREAFUNK started as an idea between two friends. An idea that simple design and functionality can be implemented into all product designs.
With the basic idea of design and functionality the first product aSHELF came to life. Combining the simplicity of the design, and the functionality of the musicplayer, aSHELF is a product most people find interesting. All ages and both sexes.
In the future all products by KREAFUNK, will be designed with this basic idea in mind.
