Droog Design: Simply Droog: 10 + 3 Years of Creating Innovation and Discussion

Museum of Arts & Design
New York
Now through January 14


In 1993, designer Gijs Bakker and art historian Renny Ramakers began selecting simple, practical objects that had undergone revelatory transformations for inclusion in their brand, Droog Design. "Droog," meaning "dry" in Dutch, suggests both austerity and wit. The objects showcased in this three-floor exhibition are laid out in imaginary, alternative living spaces and range from counterintuitive inversions to cheeky innovations. For ultimate protection against the elements, there's Joost Grootens' Bulletproof Sleeping Bag , while Tejo Remy created a dresser out of assorted found drawers he strapped together. Another whimsical item, Maartje Steenkamp's children's high chair, comes with a saw and sandpaper so that parents can shorten the chair as the child grows older.
