The Tribute to Visser exhibition showcases re-interpretations of design classics of Martin Visser by contemporary designers Jan des Bouvrie, Richard Hutten, Carolina Wilcke & Reinier Bosch, Piet Hein Eek, Kiki van Eijk, Marcel Wanders and Sabine Marcelis.

#tributetovisser

The Tribute to Visser exhibition is an ode to the furniture collection that leading Dutch designer Martin Visser (1922-2009) created for Spectrum in 1960. Visser’s collection produced many design classics, including the famous BR 02 sofa bed. To honour his contribution to design history, well-known contemporary Dutch designers pay tribute to his work. Richard Hutten, Carolina Wilcke & Reinier Bosch, Piet Hein Eek, Kiki van Eijk, Marcel Wanders, Jan des Bouvrie and Sabine Marcelis created new designs, inspired by a Visser piece of furniture. The result is ‘Tribute to Visser’ and the designs are on show at the Spectrum Studio during DDW.
