A designer of potentially useful objects
American designer Jason Rens takes familiar objects and makes them new again. How? By using unexpected forms and shapes to construct objects with a vague resemblance to things that we recognize as a useful. His Rason Jens collection is populated with geometric, structured objects that could perhaps be practical but perhaps not. The use isn’t always quite clear, which somehow opens up a world of possibilities. Why purchase a simple bookend when you could purchase a bookend that might be a candlestick holder or a place to hang your jewelry? Limitations are no fun. We’re with you, Jason Rens.
