Design student Willem Zwiers at Dutch Design Week

'The products created, are the remnants of someone’s knowledge'

Currently showing at the graduation show, part of Dutch Design Week 2023, is design student Willem Zwiers's work. His collection, aptly titled "Transformed Remnants", features a side table, a desk lamp, and a unique bookshelf made from a selection of reclaimed books, including various Bibles and self-help literature. 'The products created, are the remnants of someone’s knowledge', says Zwiers on social media.

For his graduation at Design Academy Eindhoven, Zwiers made a collection of sculptural objects from repurposed discarded products. 'The book material is made by soaking slices into a mixture of water and wood glue. This combination saturates the book fibers. Strongly clamped together, the books solidify into a singular material which is then sanded to reveal the captivating shapes. It looks like natural stone with an organic relief.'
