Dutch furniture producer Arco cherishes the value of designers presenting their personal views on the kind of products that it could make in the near future. In the periods 19-24 July 2010 and 22-25 April 2011 the company assigned eleven designers of the London based OKAY collective to develop new products in especially organised workshops.
All materials used are waste material from the production process of Arco. Probably the core detail of the products that Eelko Moorer has been doing for Arco, is the emphetically present finger joints. They are structural as well as decorative features on what the designer likes to call his ‘vanity objects’. For his vanity objects-they all facilitate slightly vain human behaviour and have the looks that go with it.
