As much a conceptual artist as a designer, Arne Quinze has embraced an unconventional approach to his creations. Quinze got his start as a graffiti artist in Belgium and has gone on to find international success for his interiors, such as that of Rem Koolhaas’ Seattle Public Library, as well as his encompassing and ambitious art installations. “Artistic inspiration comes from very deep inside me,” Quinze says. “Some people are always thinking in words. I always think in images and forms.” The form of his Primary Pouf (2000) displays his nontraditional approach. Part seat, part table and part color statement, the Pouf consists of a large cube of all-weather patented foam that resists fading and degrading indoors and out. Made in Belgium.
Bring indoors when not in use to help preserve color intensity.
