Studio Jo Meesters creates concepts and products based on the key words of matter and traditional craftsmanship. Accentuating and highlighting this vision, Studio Jo Meesters created TESTLAB, an experimental ongoing project about rejuvenating and reusing discarded materials. TESTLAB kicked off with the collection “Odds & Ends, Bits & Pieces”, consisting out of four furniture pieces. The collection which is entirely made out of 34 discarded wooden beams and 16 leftover blankets, is based on upholstering and weaving techniques creating soft variations of everyday objects.
TESTLAB is about experiments and prototypes, exploring the possibilities of the materials, removing them from their contexts and transforming them into something new.
