Unique writing table from the very early period of Gerard Kuijpers. The tabletop in Swedish Granito with its Labradorite inside is just stunning. It is signed and dated by the artist by engraving.
For thirty-five years, Gerard Kuijpers, autodidact, has been researching the essential qualities of steel, stone glass, and wood. In this way, he meets the core of his materials, whereafter he uses the power of their interaction. Glass becomes even more transparent, steel even stronger. At the same time, wood obtains more warmth, and stone becomes eternal. Moreover, even more fundamental opposites arise resistance versus movement, severity versus organic, and usability versus poetry.
So, in searching the boundaries of the materials, he creates objects that radiate simplicity and become timeless.
