Create Beauty Do Good
Blooey is the design studio and collection of Remko Verhaagen. Blooey’s multi-disciplinary portfolio shows a unique mix of product, interior and brand design, always driven by our motto ‘Create Beauty Do Good’ and inked in Remko’s signature iconic style.
We believe in a circular concept of synergy. Magic happens when we all do what we love and are best at. We focus on projects for socially and ecologically engaged clients (both commercial and non-profit), combining premium design, smart business and doing good.
The collection features an iconic selection of Remko’s best work, mixing products designed in collaboration with clients and items incubated by Blooey. All products are made by local craftsmen, using high-quality, eco-friendly materials. And 50% of the profits are donated to charity (e.g. Krukje helps Natuurmonumenten protect the Dutch forests and Boekje supports the Make-A-Wish foundation).
Remko is a wholehearted dreamer, a creative optimist and a simplicity-loving beautifier. Next to establishing his own studio and collection at Blooey, Remko has taken on projects as art director of the (profit for non-profit) Good Group and senior designer at VanBerlo. Remko’s work, which is best characterized as iconic and playful, has been awarded numerous prices including the iF Gold, RedDot Best of the Best and GIO design award.
