With a democratic approach to design, Reinier Bosch integrates a wide range of different materials and influences into his objects, all of which are related in a playful and sincere way to the materials and their multiple combinations and forms. Among the common elements of his work we find cardboard, glass, plexiglass and sheet metal, one of the first materials to inspire him as he spent time in his father’s dockyard. His design sensibility, which blends high and low cultural references, is perhaps best exemplified by pieces such as Bang (2014), a table whose underlying structure is a series of yellow letters that spell out the title of the work. The example of onomatopoeia is reminiscent of both Roy Lichtenstein’s art and the more discreet popular imagery that inspired Pop Art in the 1960s
The Melting series is a collection of pieces of furniture that appear to be melting. The objects are made in one piece with a highly polished finish.
