Dutch furniture design collective Onbetaalbaar found a rare gem in Belgium-based designer Nick Mattan. Describing itself as a “research project born out of love for objects,” Onbetaalbaar (which translates as “priceless”) is both a workshop and a kind of think-tank “where furniture makers, upholsterers, writers, philosophers, product designers, restorers and graphic designers” can get together to work on a variety of projects – and with a brief that broad, it can be hard to find a designer with the right solutions. Nick has been working on the graphic identity of the collective for some time now, creating posters for various exhibitions and events, applying a consistent, relatable but still open-ended aesthetic to both digital and printed ephemera.
