RaR is established in 2010 by two German artists: Beate Reinheimer and Ulrike Rehm. Reinheimer (1943) graduated at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam in 1972 and has given lectures on this Academy for more than 25 years. Her ceramic work has been exhibited all over the world and is included in the permanent collection of Boymans van Beuningen Rotterdam and Centraal Museum Utrecht. Rehm( 1976) graduated at the same Academy 25 years later and has finished her master study at the Sandberg Institute Amsterdam in 2011. Her work has been exhibited at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Dutch Design Week Eindhoven.

Thomas Eyck commissioned RaR to design and produce a new wall installation in porcelain: “Hain”. The collection consists of three tall porcelain trees combined with ‘fungi’ and is glazed in half-transparant green. The fungi can be used as a display. The full series has been produced in a limited and numbered edition of 10. Three smaller sets are made in an edition of 99.
“Hain”, the poetic German word for “forest”, originated from the designers’ fascination for nature, art and architecture. This work combines the artistic structures of the flora, the 17th and 18th century Wunderkammer and the former use of consoles into a fascinating and magical object.

t.e. 227“blumenspiel”, designed by RaR, consists of five flowers, made in tin. The inspiration for this series of tin flowers comes from the oldest literary society in Europe, Jeux Floraux from France ( 1323). The winners of this poetry competition were awarded a gold or silver flower: a violet, wild rose, marigold, amaranth or lily.

RaR (Beate Reinheimer & Ulrike Rehm) translated five images by graphic designer Frits Kredel (1900) from “Das Kleine Blumenbuch” into three-dimensional work. The poppy, cornflower, Solomon's seal, March violet and coltsfoot are transformed into elongated and flat shapes and seem to defy the rules of gravity. The front and back are accurately detailed, as if they came from a herbarium. The side is no more than a thin line. All flowers have different sizes and stand on a pedestal, referring to the former tin soldiers. As battles can be imitated with these soldiers, endless field bouquets can be created with these flowers. Once again RaR manages to combine history, nature and art into magical objects.

"blumenspiel" is produced by the renowned tin foundry De Tingieterij in Alphen, the Netherlands.
