Jos van der Meulen
Using the quality of the material and applying it to the new implementation is rule number two for van der Meulen. Inner tires from trucks can be handy elastic rubber bands or cast-iron street drains can be turned into storm proof terrace pottery. Van der Meulen started the production company JaJo together with Jan Neggers, primarily to produce the Paperbag series. He also works on commission for a variety of cultural institutions and companies to process leftover posters into Paperbags, Paperboxes or Paperfiles. Van der Meulen welcomes employees from companies in his workshop on a regular basis for team building. They can paint their own pieces of paper which van der Meulen then sews into Paperbags on the spot.
