We & Wijn — Studio Rose Groot
Modern-day products are an incredible source of exchange in techniques, materials and crafts. This year's coronavirus has shown how dependent we got on a globalised supply chain. As part of the Driving Dutch Design program Re-Value we show our vision on transparent production.
When a piece of furniture is produced and sold in the Netherlands, is it local? That depends. When steel comes from China, wood from Ukraine and only the craftsmanship is done in the Netherlands, we believe it is not. That is why we don’t focus on local production, but on working with a small supply chain around the production location. This way of working improves transparency in the whole chain and reduces emission from transport.
Transdiep is a narrow wardrobe, high on its legs. Made with all quality materials that are sourced in a small and transparent supply chain. The smart use of diagonal hangers makes it almost half the depth of a regular wardrobe and a practical solution for urban apartments and hotels. The foldable sliding door makes the design playful and light and hints towards the Japanese origami techniques.
