Clemens H B Rameckers & Arnold van Geuns met at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arnhem during the 1970s art revolution. The two designers, born the same month and the same week of the same year, combined their last names to make Ravage. Since 1976, they have settled in Paris. The main drive behind the collaboration was neither to innovate nor ‘design’. Instead, as fanatics of history, they confront and reconstruct academic values with an eclectic and anarchic mix of fashion, furniture, crockery, drawings, painting and sculpture. Their work—a product of erudition, wit and recollection – appears as forgery, of objets d’art that have actually never existed. For their unique craftsmanship, Ravage have been compared to medieval “imaginiers” and the “ensembliers” (creators of decorative pieces in the early 20th Century).
