Jurgen Bey




Jurgen Bey finds design solutions by examining existing objects or phenomena and deciphering how these elements can be configured to create objects of more value or purpose. Many of Bey’s designs comment on the importance or value of contemporary production. Bey’s work is many times based on experience and the emotion the specified experience evokes. Bey views his work as investigatory pieces, he converts his own questions about the world and his experiences the objects he produces, and provokes questions about the relationship of humans to objects. Bey is a member of the Droog design collective, and has produced numerous products including Tree Trunk Bench, and Garden Bench. Bey also designed the interior space for Jean Paul Gautier incorporating his wrapped furniture series.
