Diptych – New Window × Lex Pott — Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Diptych book features new work from designer Lex Pott. Eight new wooden products – which came about through a collaboration between the designer and New Window – are beautifully illustrated in this book.

Most products begin their life cycle as a sketch. The designer lends form to an idea and goes on to refine this crystallised concept. Material, finish and colour follow later. Very few designers approach their work in the way that Lex Pott does. He has a fondness for wood and metal and enjoys letting their properties guide his work. Instead of dictating the form of an object, he lets it emerge organically from the material he is using. Pott’s approach of zooming-in on a material, thereby uncovering its essence, is very much in sync with the philosophy behind the initiative New Window – started by cultural initiator Woes van Haaften – and therefore Pott was the ideal first participant.
