Bertjan Pot’s work shows a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors. The Rotterdam-based designer’s products span the space between work and play; “Never working, never not working” is one of Pot’s frequent adages. Subsequently, objects explore the parameters of everyday materials, often subjected to methods of construction at Pot’s own hands in his studio: See Pot’s Beads sculptures or many woven works such as his celebrated Mask series. Most experiments start quite impulsively, led by curiosity. From there Pot takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push the boundaries of contemporary design.
