Self-taught Frisian furniture designer Luitzen Zandbergen creates a range of interior objects and lighting designs inspired by the art and graphics found on wooden fruit crates, and even uses material from the crates in his designs. The colourful illustrations are incorporated in things as diverse as room screens, boxes, drawers, cabinets, and wall panels. Published on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition of Zandbergen’s work, this book gives an overview of 40 years of idiosyncratic production and reuse through images, curious furnishings, and a profusion of small boxes. With contributions by Hans Masselink and others, the volume comes in its own wooden slipcase.
