A salute to the Reactive Attachment Disorder, from an artist point of view. Contemporary designer Tessa Koot and photographer Lisa Klappe are showcasing their mutual love for the unwanted and the useless. Stating everything is designed ‘Happy Birthday Tessa and Lisa’ is celebrating the birth of a dysfunctional family of overlooked objects and hands on design. Design adopting products of a lesser god, for there is a whole world out there of reduced stuff without a loving owner.
