Droog Design: Lighting & Products to Environmental Design Business Model
Droog Lighting Design
Droog has many facets to it’s company, some of which I have discussed further on in this blog post however, I am researching lighting at the moment and so the following images pay homage to the fabulous lighting designs created by Droog designers and collaborations. Enjoy!
Droog was co-founded and remains under the direction of curator and author Renny Ramakers. Working in collaboration with designers, clients and partners, Droog creates products, projects and events around the world. Droog has offices in Amsterdam and New York, a store in Amsterdam, and retail partners across the globe.
Droog works in close collaboration with an international network of over one hundred and fifty established and emerging designers, architects and artists on products and projects.
As described on Droog’s website, through Droog Lab , “we pioneer new design directions, tools and models that offer a unique perspective.” Droog achieves this through:
Collaboration – “We establish new collaborations between clients, designers, institutions and the public. Bringing together the technical and the creative, the old and the young, the professional and the non-professional, we pool diverse fields of knowledge and experience to pioneer new directions for design and business.”
Models – “We develop models for creating, producing and distributing design, for business strategies, and for consumer needs and ways of living. Our models pioneer new directions in design, business and consumer culture.”
Tools – “We develop tools for identity and public relations, bringing a unique perspective to business and its intersection with consumer culture. Whether it is branding or product development, our tools engage audiences in new ways and open up new markets.”
Spaces – “We create interiors, architecture and exhibitions that establish a new relationship between the brand and the public. Our spaces redefine luxury, explore the boundary between the design and non-design world, and engage users in new ways.”
Events – “We create design exhibitions, festivals and events around the world, establishing new relationships with the local community and creating new experiences inspired by the location. Our events emphasize interaction with the audience.”
For more information about Droog design and their principles, there are a number of publications available to buy from their website.
