ABOUT

Photography: Rob van der Pas

Rotganzen is a Rotterdam and New York-based design collective. Rotganzen is Robin Stam, Joeri Horstink and Erik Schilp.

Rotganzen bridges art and design, and finds inspiration in daily life and popular culture. Robin, Joeri and Erik have a talent to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. By changing the appearance and context of everyday objects and products, they create work full of contrast and surprise, visually as well as conceptually. Rotganzen always offers a cheerful but questioning approach to life and the world around us.
