Ridder and Clown making Pop-its!

Author: // 30-Nov-2011 10:13

Ridder and Clown will be producing Pop-its during the weekend 2 - 4 December in the Jannissima concept store.

What to do with that cherished T-shirt you wore on your first date?  Bring it to Kevin Caboor for a new lease of life as a one-of-a-kind puppet. There are four designs to choose from: Show-it, Share-it, Take-it and Hug-it. Together they are called Pop-its. Made to give to someone special, each has its own character and qualities. Hug-it has enormously long arms, perfect for hugging and is filled with seeds which stay nice and warm after a stint on a radiator. Take-it’s small size on the other hand, is perfect for travel. Caboor crafts each puppet himself, selecting which parts of the material provided best suit each creation.

About Ridder and Clown:
Thijs van Agt & Kevin Caboor just graduated from the Design Academy. During their studies they worked together on several design projects and they soon discovered that they challenge and inspire each other. When you were a child, what was your answer if adults asked: What do you want to be when you grow up?

On a Sunday afternoon, Kevin and Thijs asked each other the same question again and wondered what they had answered. 

The conversation afterwards gave them an insight that they became what they already wanted to be: Ridder& Clown. A creative duo who are different in personality and have their own perspective as a product designer. Nevertheless, together they are sharing the same fantasy world. Their goal is to share their products from their fantasy world with the "real" world through their designs. A plan was born to continue as a team. 

2,3 & 4 December Ridder & Clown are making pop-its live at the  Jannissima Concept Store in Eindhoven, for a special Sinterklaas price!
So bring your old rags!
Nieuwe Emmasingel 20, 5611 AM Eindhoven.
