A huge congrats to kM's own Visser + Meijwaard for their provocative exhibit in collaboration with design studio Knockout and artist Linda Nieuwstad during Dutch Design Week 2015. Transforming their signature PVC furniture into "coffins," Kassiewijle explores the cultural and material traditions surrounding death in the modern western world. In their own words, "Nothing is certain but death. But dowdy flowers in a dull vase next to a pine coffin? Over our dead body! We present a setting in which you do want to be found dead. For the departed, Kassiewijle is a colourful alternative for the farewell. Because a last impression can be left only once." Check out V + M's Facebook page to learn more.
