ECO INSTALLATION ARTIST AND INTERIOR STYLIST
COLOUR PALETTE This is completely chosen by the context, environment, season and materials. I almost always base my work around materials regarded as ‘waste’ or neglected.
TEXTURE AND TONE I love using natural elements that have been inflfluenced by humans… and to juxtapose this with waste. At the moment I’m using yellow street signs combined with shades of yellow blossom. In short, I love a matt weathered patina and interesting shapes and colours.
CUTLERY PICK For one project we found thousands of different types of forks, knives and spoons, then dipped them in a hot-pink Bakelite/plastic, again made from waste, that gave uniformity and consistency and looked beautiful.
PLATE UP Over the years I have created many different plates and serving ware, from reconstituting plastic and melting down wine bottles to actually launching a homewares range that was designed and made here using local terracotta.
DRINK UP I like to repurpose old bottles, pots, industrial waste.
TAKE A SEAT I always like to make my own. At my home there are so many prototypes. I’m proud to say that one journalist wrote: “Joost defifinitely designed the world’s most brutal and uncomfortable chair!” 4
“I ALWAYS BASE EVERYTHING AROUND WHAT I FEEL IS THE ‘FOUNDATION’. IT COULD BE A FOUND OBJECT OR FOUND MATERIALS, THEN IT GOES FROM THERE.”
