Bamboo Windsor Chairs to be launched at London Design Festival [2012-09-10]
Our new Bamboo Windsor Chairs, designed in collaboration with Bamboo-architect Olav Bruin, will be presented at Connecting the Dots during London Design Festival.
The aim of the Bamboo Windsor Chair is to re-examine the reputation and aesthetic of bamboo furniture, and to use the inherent qualities of the natural material bamboo to create mass products that are all individual. The design is a contemporary interpretation, of the all-time western classic windsor chair, made with Asian craftsmanship and materials: in this way east merges with west.

Series of Kids' Furniture to be launched at Dutch Design Week [2011-10-19]
Bo Reudler Studio will present the Kids Furniture series during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven 22-30 October 2011. The exhibition forms part of a design auction organised by the World Wildlife Fund that will be held in the Klokgebouw, Strijp-S.
A wooden furniture series for children. The collection is composed from elemental shapes and basic materials, built in an intuitive, playful way. The series comprises a table and chair, rocking horse, wheelbarrow and dolls cradle.
The objects are hand made from solid oak finished with a coating of natural oil and soft colorful footings of woollen felt. The edges of the furniture retain the original curves of the trunk or branch enabling every piece to be unique.
The wood originates from fallen Dutch trees that are sawn in the traditional wind-powered sawmill Het Jonge Schaap situated in the Zaanse Schans, Zaanstad.
The Kids Furniture series was realized with the generous support of Het Jonge Schaap
and Jantien Ranzijn & vdr.
The design exhibition and auction
organized by the World Wildlife Fund
will be held from 22-30 October 2011 in the Klokgebouw on the Strijp-s terrain. Buyers can bid for the products online via e-bay or via auction forms at the exhibition. The proceeds of each sale will be donated to a WWF project as nominated by the buyer. The exhibition is open daily from 12-18:00pm.

Haute Bamboo series to be launched in Milan [2010-03-29]
For the Haute Bamboo series we joined forces
with bamboo-architect Olav Bruin.
Haute Bamboo picks up where the Slow White series by Bo Reudler Studio
left off: it continues the quest to renew our connection with nature, guided by
natural forms in an intuitive way.
While bamboo is among our fastest renewable resources, itʼs often
considered a poor man's timber. With this series, we wanted to re-examine
the aesthetics of bamboo furniture. The curves of 'Bambusa Ventricosa' are
caused by a rare mutation in the bamboo producing strikingly bulbous stalks.
The bulging forms give personality to each piece which will always be different
due to the randomness of each stalk. A coating of glossy black linseed-oil
paint references eastern lacquered furniture, binding the origin of the material
with its outcome. All products are hand made.
The Haute Bamboo series will be lauched during Fuori Salone Milan 14-19
April 2010 Tuttobene
, Via Savona 18.

New product for Toolsgalerie [2009-02-02]
in Paris we designed a new carpet called Equus. It will be exclusively available through ToolsGalerie in a limited edition of 8.
A horse hide is cut with a graphic pattern made of the Fleur-de-Lis, an enduring symbol of France and a motif commonly found on antique Dutch ceramic tiles. The pattern punched out of the rug creates open sections like enlarged lace, at the same time suggesting decay as it looks like the Fleur-de-Lis have been slowly eating into the hide. Contrary to convention, this carpet is not meant to cover or hide your floor but to start an interaction with it. The striking pattern is the connection in between, closing or opening to reveal what's underneath.

New chair [2008-10-16]
Prototype of a low armchair designed for a private client. The chair is intended not only for sitting but to be lived in: its low, wide seat beckons the user while the upturned profile creates a feeling of being cradled. The construction and detailing of the chair is on display while the simplicity of the design of the frame belies its complexity.
The cushions are upholstered with remnant fabrics salvaged from local furniture upholsterers. In this way, the composition and identity of every chair will always be unique. As opposed to the whole chair or sofa needing to be re-upholstered after wear and tear, a patchwork of fabrics means only that particular worn-out section needs to be repaired. As each piece of fabric is replaced, the memory of the chair and its life is stored in the patchwork of remnants as time goes by.
I called the chair remnant chair.

Diner de Midas for 20th anniversary of Residence [2007-09-24]
For their 20th aniversary the magazine Residence choose us and 19 other Dutch designers to celebrate their birthday with. Seroj and I were asked to design a product for on a table. Inspiration was the opulent paintings of table's of the dutch golden age. Our starting point was the story of mythical king Midas who transformed everything he touched in gold. Even his kids and his food. We made moulds of fruit and vegatables, placed this food in different combinations and compositions on vintage ceramic bowls and covered them partly with 24-carat gold. This bowl is made in a limited edition of 50 pieces.

La Table en Fete [2007-09-24]
EX-IS art festival: The Anatomical Clock [2007-03-12]
At the 9th of march the premiere of the performance Anatomische Klok of Sebastiaan Kral
will take place at the Ex-is art festival in The Hague, The Netherlands. Dance by Pablo Fontdevila, design by Bo Reudler. Check
The goal of the performance was to make a clock, which at the same time is a portrait of the human body, and more so, a portrait of man standingup to, and struggling with time. Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man and Christ on the cross formed the inpiration for the performance.
We designed an object which caused the shadow of an antique rococo tableclock on the wall. This shadow Pablo could use as a reference and context. The object I called anti-shadow. That also the reason why the object is white. The slice is made from two layers of lasercut wood. The leg is carved from massive wood and is coated with a layer of real copper.
