Hella Jongerius

Hella Jongerius is a familiar name in design land. And one of my favorite product designers.
She has a lot of projects on her name. The first time I discovered Hella was through her Souvenir Delfts Blue set B. Several typical Delfts tableware got scaled down and became a charm bracelet.
But Hella has a new wonderful project on her name, called ‘Natura Design Magistra’. If you like to see Hella`s newest design in real life, book yourself a ticket to Paris. Galerie Kreo from Paris is currently exhibiting Hella`s work.

This is probably my favourite of all of Hella`s designs;
her famous Office Pets. With her office pets Hella shows us that these days we expect much more of our products than just immediate utility and use. Contemporary design is now-a-days much more concerned with image, meanings and messages.
