They may no longer have Gijs Bakker at the helm, but Droog is pushing forward, now into residential housing design. For next week’s Design Miami, the collective will be unveiling the Droog Townhouse, which they didn’t exactly build (the architecture stuff was created by Tokyo’s Atelier Bow-Wow) but will feature a 100% Droog interior, from the lighting to the furniture to everything in between. The whole project was commissioned by an Amsterdam housing association and will be on display from the 1st to the 5th.
Imagined for a single, a contemporary family or as a VIP guesthouse, the one-of-a-kind layout is essentially a seamless flow of spaces, each with its own functionality merging with circulation space. Private rooms such as the master and optional guest bed, the bath, the balcony and a sound-proof refuse are amply separated by shared space, creating a unique combination of contact and independence, spaciousness and intimacy.
We call first dibs if they decide they don’t want it after the 5th.
