Simple packaging material such as honeycomb cardboard can, with a little imagination, also become a building. 
Floris Hovers set to work with the material and composed autonomous buildings in which color and proportions predominate, the material does the rest. The buildings refer to post-war architecture and sometimes even to Brutalism.

In 2004 Floris Hovers earned his degree at the Design Academy and since then he has independently designed a wide variety of work: toys, furniture, other interior designs and singular objects. He produces and markets his designs himself or via a renowned label such as the Italian Magis. He also often works by assignment. The ‘cities’ that he composes from scraps from his studio, have found their way to art galleries and collectors’ homes.

The environment Hovers grew up in a Dutch village called Raamsdonksveer, where he still works. His father’s concrete production plant, is a source of inspiration. Machinery, tractors, old toys and life in the countryside: traces of all these elements can be found in his work. His designs emerge during the process of making. In his spacious workshop he builds, constructs and explores his ideas within the third dimension. Colour plays a prominent role in his work. Not as something that is to be added at the end, but as a driver and source of inspiration.
