Dutch entrepreneur and former Moooi co-founder Casper Vissers has launched a new furniture and lighting brand called Revised.

Revised features products made from traditional materials including wood, stone, glass and steel, all designed by young Dutch designer Sjoerd Vroonland.

The launch collection evokes styles from the early 20th century and is influenced by interiors seen by Vissers and his wife, Suzy, while travelling.

“We believe we come with a new design concept but obviously it’s very clearly influenced by things from the past,” said Vissers. “It is a modern design company but we look back and we get inspired by the beautiful shapes, concepts and atmospheres of the past.”

Products are named after English villages such as Thakeham, Edburton and Ovington, while the material palette includes walnut, oak and marble. Traditional forms such as bent wood and tambour doors feature heavily and there is barely a straight line to be seen anywhere in the collection, with pieces featuring rounded corners and edges.

Vissers asked Vroonland to collaborate on designs for Revised but the designer came back with so many ideas that he ended up designing the entire collection.

“He understood the concept, so the soul of us all working together was born from that moment,” Vissers said. “It’s impossible to say that there will be only one designer for the rest of Revised’s life but first the first collection, it is a great team.”
