New traditionalism

The October issue of Items, the Dutch design magazine for Dutch designers, carries an article by Jan Middendorp on the work of Fred Smeijers, complete with a designer-stubble photo of the subject. (We resisted such an approach for the author’s picture on his book.) In the article itself, Fred is portrayed, accurately, as an advocate of ‘twenty-first-century traditionalism’.
