Leading up to IMM2016 I had the pleasure of working with Dutch company Gelderland and visit their showroom and factory where I got a sneak peek of the new collection. Just like previous years, Gelderland presented their new collection during the IMM 2016 in Cologne, where I visited their new spot at Design Post.
Remy Meijers is one of Gelderland's newest designers and is known for his sober and serene interiors, he loves how the company allows designers full control over every single detail when it comes to the execution of their designs, and in turn Gelderland loves the no-nonsense look of Remy's designs. For Gelderland Remy has designed a new dining room chair and table and a series of couches in different sizes, materials and a variety of beautiful greyish and brown tones, and oozes sober luxury.
The newly designed coffee table by Remy Meijers, is available in two sizes and has a playful accent in the tabletop, just my thing as it is perfect to frame a small collection. In the first place, Remy is an interior designer, and both his current and previous collections allow him to add an extra layer to his work.
In addition to the new collection, some classics have been added to the collection on display in Cologne: 'Small Square', Roderick Vos' famous solid oak side tables, are now available in a dark wood version. The side tables were originally made in a light oak colour, and come in six different models, inspired by Chinese characters.
To celebrate Gelderlander's 80 year anniversary, the 'Armchair 400' by Jan des Bouvrie is being re-released, with a few small updates. Originally, the 'Armchair 400' was a 70's design by Jan des Bouvrie, a designer who has been with Gelderlander for 35 years, and is responsibly for many of the classics.
