Description Matrix Bench by Oskar Peet and Sophie Mensen
Dimensions: 141.2 x 30 x 42.1 cm
Materials: Powdercoated Steel

The Matrix project is and began as a system to allow for
endless configurations and constructions. The base concept
is derived from architectural constructions and solutions
for multipurpose form meets function situations.
As the construction of the Matrix is built up of individual
ribs, the ribs can be designed any which way. This allows
the system to be applied to products as well as interior
features, or even architectural structures themselves.
When view from the front the grid structure has a very
transparent character but as the structures start to bend
the transparency disappears in a gradient of light type
fashion. The inner surfaces of each individual square capture
and play with light and appear differently from all
other perspectives.

Studio OS and OOS is a design studio for small objects to larger spatial concepts;
the studio tries to find the balance between form, material, and their relation to the surroundings and the user. For the duo it is the constant search to find the essence in the complex that drives them, taking an initial concept and working it into an object that conveys only what is meant to.
The majority of work borders the line of design (in the industrial/ functionality sense) and autonomous objects; best described as contemporary objects derived from concept, yet rationalized to give them purpose. The conclusion of these efforts results in neither a product nor pure artistic expression but a culmination of both. A product where art=industry.

As a result works of OS and OOS has been commissioned by production partners such as Fontana Arte, Please Wait to be Seated, and Umbra-Shift, and have their work represented nationally and internationally at prestigious fairs such as Design Miami/Basel, PAD London, and Paris, Collective Fair in New York, Fog Fair San Francisco, Design Days Dubai and Collectible in Brussels to mention a few.

Their work has also been included at museums such as the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven, Mac’s Grand-Hornu in Belgium, The Design Museum in London, and Villa Noailles in Hyeres, as well as having work acquired by the Vitra Design Museum for their permanent collection.

Lately, the studio also moved towards interior design completing recently the flagship store for Ace & Tate.

Oskar Peet (NL/CAN) and Sophie Mensen (NL) are both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven (2009), and started the firm OS? OOS in the autumn off 2011. Both live and work currently in the city of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. They also occasionally teach as guest teachers at the Design Academy Eindhoven and the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
