Item description for Martin Veltkamp: Vision by Chris Nagel, Renee Van Beckhoven & Martin Veltkamp...
Martin Veltkamp is one of the most distinguished garden designers in the Netherlands--a country that is considered a world leader in landscape architecture. A self-confessed perfectionist whose philosophy emphasizes functionality without ornament, Veltkamp is as well-known for his spare yet lush planting designs as he is for his line of sleek and organic-feeling outdoor furniture and accessories. This volume collects a variety of recent projects, from a suburban yard with fish pond and arbor, to urban and rural patios, a rooftop deck and a canal-side dock. All express tranquility and rigor, simplicity, rhythm, lightness and balance. Featured Veltkamp-designed objects include planters, pillows, fountains, lighting fixtures, seating, canopies, showers and chaises longues. Several essays round out this photo collection, with quotes from Veltkamp throughout: "For me, simplicity means a subdued approach when using lines and planes; this provides a sense of tranquility and gives an overall view of the whole."
