Schepers Bosman x Auping
Designer duo Schepers Bosman and bed and mattress manufacturer Auping presented ‘Consumption Quarantine’ during Dutch Design Week 2020, a capsule collection made from leavings from the Auping factory in Deventer.
The collection consists of three sets of ‘experimental patchwork bedding’: a bedspread that can also be used as a wallrug and accompanying wearable pieces for sleeping or relaxing. The sets are made from leaving materials from the Auping factory, such as duvet covers, mattress ticking and box spring fabrics.
Visible seams and stitching emphasize the construction of the designs and the feel of the creative production process. Scraps, fraying and edges make the pieces interesting and show the hand of the maker in each piece. The colors, shapes and textures of the leaving materials from the Auping factory give shape to the graphic design of the three bedspreads: Royal, Colorblock and Landscape. The accompanying wearable pieces, which balance between blanket and sleepwear, visualize the intimacy between the wearer and the piece itself – referring to the current relevance of a blanket as a wearable item.
The common goal behind ‘Consumption Quarantine’ is to create openness and awareness about local production, handicrafts and sustainable Dutch design.
