Lockdown

285.00

At the end of the day, chair upside down on your table as a final chord. That leaves plenty of room for the sweeping team.

It looks like a seemingly familiar situation, but it soon turns out to be a special intergrowth with mainly adverse effects for the users. Moreover, as a result of this unification, the drawers can no longer be opened and thus the knowledge and materials stored in it are unaccessible: a Lockdown.

Naturally, the drawing refers to the countless classrooms that were inaccessible to millions of children worldwide during the corona crisis.

 

Aan het eind van de dag stoeltje omgekeerd op je tafeltje bij wijze van slotakkoord. Dat geeft ruim baan voor de veegploeg.

Een ogenschijnlijk vertrouwde situatie lijkt het maar al snel blijkt hier sprake van een bijzondere vergroeiing met vooral nadelige effecten voor de gebruikers. Bovendien is het ladenblok als gevolg van deze één-wording niet meer te openen en daarmee zijn de erin opgeborgen kennis en materialen afgesloten: een Lockdown.

Uiteraard verwijst de tekening naar de ontelbare klaslokalen die gedurende de corona-crisis ontoegankelijk waren voor de miljoenen kinderen wereldwijd.

Stripping Braakman

475.00

Welcome to the world of the SB01 designed by Cees Braakman and produced by the Dutch company Pastoe. This could just be the first page of this story that you as a viewer can complete. For now it is the first page framed and to be hanged on the wall.

Happy feet

285.00

A classic office chair from the TU Delft collection dating from the beginning of the last century. The designer is unknown.

Mixed up II

375.00

Who knows, that bit, that leftover, may come in handy again. A good feature not to throw something away too quickly. I have often managed to solve something because I had ‘kept something somewhere’. The downside is that it can sometimes get out of hand and the amount of leftovers is more or less reluctant. For example, I saved some undamaged parts of a chair that I literally slumped through. Composing a new frame from leftover frame pieces requires a drawing in which the depicted chair is also composed of parts of (eight) other chairs.

Who knows, that bit, that leftover, may come in handy again. A good feature not to throw something away too quickly. I have often managed to solve something because I had ‘kept something somewhere’. The downside is that it can sometimes get out of hand and the amount of leftovers is more or less reluctant. For example, I saved some undamaged parts of a chair that I literally slumped through. Composing a new frame, a leftovers-frame, from preserved frame pieces requires a drawing in which the depicted chair is also composed of parts of (four) other chairs.

Relations

525.00

Are we looking at a self-portrait here? Or is it a family member? From a previous generation possible? After all generation is also a form of relationship. Or is the relationship simply the front and back of this Pastoe chair designed by Cees Braakman?

Mixed zone

550.00

A chair in two frames or ….

Lie back

225.00

I already made Pinocchio pulling a long nose. Looking at the opponent, the surprise is no less. Who is lying?

Braakman’s gaze

275.00

One can see this as a kind of cartoon for on the wall: The making of the SB01 by Cees Braakman in the Pastoe factory in the 1960s. The four-panel work also unites earlier ideas such as one of the Portraits (sold), Pinocchio and Lie back and in that sense also tells another story.

Update

425.00

A meeting between Cees Braakman’s SB01 and an updated version of this model.

Looking back

285.00

The series of luxury cassettes for the book All in the family has found its youngest offshoot. Do not misunderstand the black area in your back, you will just give yourself a look.

Unlock II

825.00

A variation on Unlock that comes with the key, which should make the escape possible.

Paradigma-shift

625.00

Starting point was the backrest, which actually forms a kind of frame for this type of chair. Building on that thought, this is the result. A more or less complete reversal. A frame that frames and protects a drawing and above it an empty sheet of paper which is just as well protected by a drawn frame. Who protects this list here?

Swing II

275.00

Drawing and frame together create a new connection here. The swing is attached to the top of the recessed frame and comes out of the paper.

Familyportrait II

300.00

A portrait of my own family by using four chairs by Cees Braakman (for Pastoe). Spatially placed in a sunken frame, which makes it a viewing box.

Snorrenstoel

Commission

(Not for sale)

A common school chair with a recess in the back as a handle. And a colleague with a striking mustache who has delivered art projects for almost thirty years at hundreds of schools throughout Noord-Brabant and a little bit beyond. By combining both I created the Mustache Chair with the mustache as a handle.
