We are very honoured to have received this prize last Wednesday out of the hands of Emily Ansenk, director of Kunsthal Rotterdam. What a night! Many thanks to all the members of the jury and the Willem de Kooning Academy.
The jury sees a Rotterdam design / artist duo with a sharp vision in which the symbiosis between artistic and business is immediately visible and tangible. The work of REM atelier features research of everyday objects that results in creating of playful spatial awareness. The jury was particularly keen on the development of the Plant Growing Plants Indoors Plant to Botanic Wall – one custom-made item for retail and catering industry. The jury is curious about the next step in their practice, what comes after? “
