90X200 refers to the minimum space allocated to an individual for sleep and rest. Every refugee in Europe is entitled to the minimum size mattress of a 90x200cm. With 90X200 we aim to critically question the relationship between bespoke and everyday needs, using the mattress as an object of identification and desire.

The series of mattresses will be designed especially for COLLECTIBLE 2024 using fabrics selected by Gert Voorjans in collaboration with Daniel Heer. In reference to the minimum size of 90x200cm we will use two metal bunk beds as a frame to present the bespoke horsehair mattresses. Within this reduced technical structure the mattresses become objects of desire due to the extraordinary fabrics selected by Gert Voorjans.
