Did you ever use carbon tracing paper to get a copy of a drawing you liked or needed? Well, I used carbon fiber and epoxy resin to sketch a 3d version (strong enough to sit on) of one of my favorite chairs. More than fifty years after Charles Eames made his Fiberglass DSR Chair, it's design and construction still stands, even in carbon because of his brilliant engineering job. The prototype can be seen at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Rotterdam (NL) and at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (NL). It will not be produced.
materials: black carbon fibre drained in epoxy resin
dimensions: h:79 w:47 d:49 cm, seating height: 46 cm
2003 - Comments Off on Binnen Gratis Plassen (free pee inside) | 2003
To get more people to see an exhibition featuring amongst others Maarten Baas and me in the ‘Artotheek Den Haag’, we put a sign out in the street that said "binnen gratis plassen." (free pee inside). Inside, the signs that were supposed to guide you to the toilet at the same time guided you trough the entire exhibition.
The puffin club was a smoker’s hideout that Tjeerd Veenhoven and I built to support our presentation during the furniture fair April 2003 in Milan. It was the only place in the building were smoking was permitted, so we had no complaints about a lack of audience.
Yes, this is another coloring book by an artist/designer. It’s just that in this A4/12 page book even the artist didn’t know what he was drawing. It is just there to try to get you started with some pencils, paint or whatever you would like to draw with. It is called “huh?” because that seems to be the internationally accepted term for: “What’s this?”
Constructed like a light reflective screen used by photographers, this large (110cm diameter) foldable light shade isn’t the slickest thing around but sure provides you with a nice light over a dinner table or a workspace. Formerly produced by Moustache.
