Hella Cool

Claire Sullivan - Wednesday, April 01, 2009

If you happen to be in Paris anytime soon a visit to Gallerie Kreo would be well worthwhile. Dutch designer Hella Jongerius (who's profiled in our latest issue of Design Folio) is exhibiting some new and quite simply outstanding work. Jongerius is renowned for her unique ability to create personal and meaningful work that considers the relationship that people will have with an object. " If you create products that have real meaning for people, they are likely to last longer because they will want to keep them." 
The Frog Table,  Turtle Coffee Table and Artificial Vases above are all part of the new collection. Locally you can admire the work of Hella Jongerius at Cite where you'll find pieces she has designed for Vitra.
