Dot Notebooks

Hella Jongerius, 2016


Dots have always been a source of inspiration for Dutch designer Hella Jongerius and are an important stylistic element in her textile and product designs. This is reflected in the Seat Dot cushions or decorative Coat Dot hooks she has designed for Vitra, as well as in contrasting details such as the decorative buttons of the Polder Sofa.

A single dot is an ordinary shape. But in a pattern it comes to life, interacting with the surrounding surface and other dots in regard to size, spacing and material. This is illustrated by the Dot Notebooks in four different colour schemes from the Vitra Colour and Material Library – reds, greens, lights and darks: each series of multi-coloured dots, some of which are embossed in matt or gloss foil, forms a playful pattern on the light grey cover. The seemingly random arrangement of dots is the result of an elaborate design process.

The Dot Notebooks come in two sizes.
