Unique Gerard Kuijpers 1986 writing table & chairs

Description

A unique hand made writing table and prototype chairs by Belgian design artist Gerard Kuijpers.  Kuijpers was only designing two years when he made this. The chairs are prototypes that he wanted to propose to Belgochrom in those years. Finally they never went into production.

The pieces can be acquired separately.

As a gallery we have always had a strong affinity with the consequent approach of Gerard. He’s works are not hiding anything or don’t try to please in any way. Instead each piece is an autonome character that questions and plays with the laws of physics.

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, where after he uses the power of their interaction. Glass becomes even more transparent, steel even stronger; while wood obtains more warmth, 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.
