Reviews

"Hella Jongerius: Misfit is a handsome book, its design by fellow dutch designer Irma Boom, reflecting the imaginative work of the maverick product designer."-d-talks.com

"This monograph (stich-bound - lovely) brings together and celebrates the work of the genius Dutch designer, Hella Jongerius... Her work is gloriously eccentric, yet grounded. The perfect combination. And we love her Polder sofa, always have, always will."-Living Etc magazine

"Designing a design monograph is bit of a balancing act... Trust Irma Boom to get it spot-on with this gorgeous collection... The book's soft binding, untrimmed paper and tactile layered-vinyl cover illustration provide subtle nods to the unexpected and craft-influenced elements that have become Jongerius's signature; inside, the aspects of Jongerius's practice that set her apart are all proudly on display... It's a book almost as covetable as the design it sets out to celebrate; if Hella Jongerius is a misfit, fitting in has never seemed less desirable."-Grafik

"A wonderfully tactile and detailed showcase... Like much of Jongerius' work, this monograph has the mark of the maker: deliberately dynamic and demonstrative it is a wonder to behold."-Bethany Rex, Aesthetica
