Design surrounds us. Every day, in every moment. Every product we use is designed, the form follows it's function, but the most people don't think about this fact. They realize design only in form of luxury design furniture which reflects our life style or works as expensive and useless decoration in our living rooms. But there are some designers which creates products with more than just a beautiful surface. For example the design collective Droog, which was founded by the curator and art historian Renny Remakers and designer Gijs Bakker during the nineties in The Netherlands.
For the first presentation in 1994 Remakers and Bakker choose products from young emerging designers like Hella Jongerius, Marcel Wanders or Jurgen Bey and present them under the name "Droog" at Salone Internazionale del Mobile. All products are connected trough the reflection of their function, form, design and placement in the every day life, a wry kind of humor and irony and a strong concept, which is more present than the beauty of the product.
