25 Oct JORDY VAN DEN NIEUWENDIJK X FATBOY
When art meets design: limited edition Fatboy items created by Dutch artist Jordy van den Nieuwendijk.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Fatboy’s iconic bean bag, the Original, Fatboy has teamed up with Dutch artist Jordy van den Nieuwendijk.
Fatboy has always had a keen eye for design, art and creative applications. Functionality and usability play a key role in the development of new products, while colours and shapes are other strong points that have Fatboy’s full focus.
When looking at the works of Dutch artist Jordy van den Nieuwendijk (1985), colours and shapes immediately draw the attention. As a painter Jordy creates a chaotic blend of motion and freedom, delivered with knowing wit, humour and tradition. His style is known for primary colours and big, recognizable shapes, while playing with the white of the canvas.
When art meets design: limited edition Fatboy items created by Dutch artist Jordy van den Nieuwendijk. During his career Jordy worked with renowned brands such as Hermes and Ace & Tate. His energetic and direct style illustrates his work as bold and surprising, exactly what makes Jordy and Fatboy perfect partners for a great collaboration.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the Original, the fresh team-up with Jordy pays tribute to Fatboy’s world famous, iconic bean bag. This special collaboration will lead to the unique decoration of a Fatboy Original and a specially designed carpet that will reveal some clever hidden messages.
