17th-century silicone tablecloths and 3D-printed cutlery
Using modern materials, Droog transformed the colours, shapes and details of the Old Masters as well as glassware, silverware and tableware from the Rijksmuseum collection into contemporary products. The centuries-old silver sugar spoon and porcelain butter trowel have been redesigned and turned into a sleek cutlery set of 3D-printed titanium. The model for deJongeKalff’s silicone tablecloth was a 15th-century woodcut by Albrecht Dürer from the Rijksmuseum collection.
Studio Droog and the Rijksmuseum have once again joined forces for this presentation, having previously created several products including a temporary tattoo based on a work by Jan Davidsz. de Heem. Last October, the Rijksmuseum launched Rijksstudio, a website containing 140,000 high-resolution images from its rich collection. All the images can be downloaded free of charge for personal and creative use.
De presentatie is tot en met 16 juni te zien bij Hôtel Droog.
