BUM BUM Collection by Eugeni Quitllet

2 VONDOM collection by Eugeni Quitllet 2014

BUM BUM in and outdoor collection by Eugeni Quitllet for Vondom was born from the principle of not designing objects, but rather musical instruments to be used for another purpose; the same as a person who holds a shell to their ear to hear the ocean. This collection that has tubular shapes allows us to experiment with light and sound simultaneously. It’s “argonautic” form enables us to create a new environment, as well as atmospheric spaces, wherever we are.

The collection is made up of a sofa, a table, an armchair and “toro”(bull), a unique member with a great variety of functions. It is a collection designed for the God of the sea, Neptune, and the mermaids that dance in time with the waves… It’s that simple… a summer dream.

EUGENI QUITLLET BY RAINER HOSCH

The Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet was born on 17th April 1972 in Ibiza. He graduated from ‘La Llotja’ art school in Barcelona. Through his creative vocabulary he exceeds simple relationships between function and style unveiling innovative objects. Between drawing, sculpture and contemporary archaeology, Quittlet literally reveals silhouettes hidden in the material, extremely visual skeletal objects elegantly master fullness and emptiness often with a touch of humour: the Masters chair combines the 3 contours of legendary seats by Eames, Saarineen and Jacobsen, the K Ray lamp is an organic UFO, a network of veins hollowed out of the material which results in an object suspended in a frame, his signature method prevalent naturally in several of the designer’s projects: the Shine vases, the Light Air lamp, the 0’Clock lamp, without forgetting the O Ring watch, a hole in time in the true sense, best seller of the brand Fossil modernising watchmaking codes. A revelation of the contours and forms that he likes to summarize here again through a metaphor that plays with the suspension and murkiness to dispel: ‘Utopia is a mist from where feasible ideas emerge.’

From object to space, Eugeni Quitllet is a design world freak capable of devouring the whole of our environment in his own way to serve it up to us transformed. It is no surprise to learn then that his career began in the company of another freak: Philippe Starck. The only designer to have co-signed pieces with the French designer, Quitllet initiated with Starck what he calls a ‘cool-laboration’ in 2001 by descending on his house in Formentera. A flash of artistic brilliance that led to many projects for Kartell, Driade, Flos, Alias, Emeco, Xo, Magis, Dedon…

Eugeni Quitllet founded his studio in Barcelona in 2011. He has designed new fun and fluid tableware for Air France, the Shine vase collection for Kartell that combines precious crystal with visual economy and lastly the interior design of the Fromagerie de la Jeune Rue unveiled in Paris in spring 2014.
