Weltevree

Inviting users to rediscover their environment, Weltevree take to the outdoors for their Milan presentation this year launching a diving board, outdoor oven and a new two-person Dutchtub.

By Jeanne Tan / 17-04-2010

Amidst the tall 'grassed' surrounds of the industrial exhibition space in a factory in Ventura Lambrate, Weltevree unveiled new pieces for 2010. Instead of an open display, the aim was to allow visitors to gradually discover the products which are slightly hidden in the installation. The exhibition formed part of the Made In Arnhem contribution. 

The aim this year was to invite people to think about the benefits of the use of a product and to rediscover and experience the environment. Divewood allows a forest pond to be used as a swimming pool. Designed by Weltevree co-founder Floris Schoonderbeek, the diving board comprises oak boards which are stacked together to create a wooden spring. Schoonderbeek is best-known for his now iconic Dutchtub, a playful outdoors tub heated by wood which fits four people. A two-person version tub was added to the collection this year. The Outdooroven from co-designer/founder Dick van Hoff encourages the enjoyment and prolonging of the outdoor season. Constructed from pre-rusted Corten steel, the oven comes with its own cookbook made in collaboration with Arnhem chef Jeroen van Werven (Restaurant Look). A beautiful detail of the book is that through the surface coating (which is found on matchboxes), matchsticks can be lit from the cover of the book. Van Hoff's Socketlight made of porcelain was also added to this year's new collection.
