CIty Landscape Block set des. Floris Hovers for Ikonic


By: Ikonic

Set of 32 colourful wooden blocks designed by Dutch designer Floris Hovers. The blocks represent a city landscape and are extremely distinctive, decorative and yet very playful.
Designer Floris Hovers is working for the furniture and design industry but apart from that he is also an artist who creates contemporary art pieces. He is well-known for his city models and skylines made out of scrap materials, which are sold in art galleries. With these Archiblocks, you can create your own city skyline! You can change the composition of this skyline everyday if you like. Be as playful as Floris, and go creative!

Floris Hovers was born in 1976 in Raamsdonksveer in the south of The Netherlands. After some basic training in engineering and advertising and presentation techniques in Utrecht, he studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and graduated in 2004. In 2006 he started his own design studio and workshop.

The designs of Floris Hovers are surprising in their disarming simplicity, the final result of a prolonged process of reduction. What remains is the essence - and almost cartoon-like composition of form, construction and colour. The work of Floris Hovers has been included in the permanent collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
