view web site ›'s insider take:

Droog Design is more than a shop—although it has one. It's an approach to the world that began as a 1993 show curated by Renny Ramaker and Gijs Bakker. Like the overarching Dutch philosophy to "do normal," the lighting, furniture, and accessories created by this nonprofit's stable of some 100 designers emphasize each piece's reason to exist and the meaning behind that reason. The results are both cerebral and useful (Droog does mean dry, as in "dry wit," in Dutch), such as a silicone tablecloth with a built-in bowl, bronze chair backs that fashion a bench when affixed to a fallen tree trunk, and an oil and vinegar set that's just one tube with two spouts (one near the top for the oil, the other at the base for the vinegar).

Open Tuesdays through Sundays noon to 6 pm.
