Piet Boon is one of the most influential designers to come out of the Netherlands in recent years. His designs are the perfect mix of functionality, timeless design, distinguished signature details and a keen eye for aesthetics. Not surprisingly, these adjectives epitomize Oosten, his largest commission to date. Unquestionably modern, Boon's style boasts a classical touch that is evidenced by his affinity for pure, natural materials and a subdued palette. His designs for Oosten – many of which were initially hand-sketched – have the kind of timeless appeal that one rarely thinks of when speaking to contemporary trends, making it refreshingly distinctive. The craftsmanship and attention to detail at Oosten harken back to Boon’s early days as a carpenter, and speak to a no-nonsense Dutch style that it has taken him decades to hone.
