Accessories - Spectrum Collection

Timeless Design Back in Production with a New Twist

In 2021 Spectrum was founded 75 years ago as the daughter of weaving mill De Ploeg. To mark the occasion, Spectrum will reissue a number of special items from its history, including the ‘Utrecht’ wall shelf that Constant designed for Spectrum in 1956 and the IJhorst stool from 1954. Studio Rens will give the collection a contemporary colour scheme. 

Involved partners

Spectrum & Constant


Shortly after Martin Visser was appointed head of design at Spectrum, he asked Constant to create new designs for the furniture collection. Visser had been working with Constant during his time at De Bijenkorf where he applies both art and colour schemes from Constant in his exhibitions in the furniture department.
The IJhorst table series designed by Constant in 1953 turned out to be a success and was included in the collection again in 2015. Constant also designed a number of wall shelves, including the Utrecht model that will be added to the Spectrum collection again this year.

Design Classics with a New Twist

Spectrum Design commisioned Studio Rens to create a new colour scheme for their accessories line of classical design objects.
