In 2016, the Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch, recently renamed Design Museum Den Bosch, received 280 ceramic objects from the personal collection of Dutch interior designer Benno Premsela (1920-97). This book documents these objects and gives readers a deeper understanding of the designer himself--a champion of "good living" and gay-rights activist who had the makings of a compulsive hoarder. Though his collection is vast, Premsela had strict views about his modernist, minimal designs and the objects he collected, which vary greatly in style from his own designs. The publication not only documents the ceramics given to the museum, but also illustrates the functional quality of Premsela's collection in context. Photographs and discussion of his residence and the display of objects within accompany documentation of the many exhibitions to which he contributed.
