A paradox has been created by providing Cees Braakman’s SB02 with ten instead of three fixings for the backrest, and placing it behind bars. This creates a kind of Gordian knot or ouroboros-like impossibility.
See also the drawing Update from 2019. This creates a login look similar to a telephone.
Leerdam because of the famous Dutch cheese with holes, of course. The work goes back to the drawing ‘Leerdammer chair’ I made in the year 2000.
Where in that drawing only the drawn chair showed holes, in this one it didn’t stop there.
One of the first drawings that I made during my graduation phase at the Academy for Visual Education in Tilburg and that passed the selection was Escher in Oirschot. Escher because of the spatial joke and Oirschot because of the origin of the drawn chair. This one stood in the kitchen of the student house where my wife Sofia lived at that time. This is a variation where the Escher-like twist is in the play with frame, environment and drawing.
If chairs can walk, run and rest, they might also be able to think, right? In the pencil drawings Comic, I am not a chair and Telepathy, the comic language clearly finds its entrance into my work. In this work, which is part of an unspecified series, we look at the fantasies of Gerrit Rietveld‘s red-blue chair, who reflects on Theo van Doesburg‘s chair.
The Building Plate that I drew in 2003 is a precursor. In this case, there is already some ‘building activity’ whereby the drawing takes place in two dimensions (but actually still in one).
A tired chair, you don’t see that very often. Give him a well-deserved rest.
See ok, but sit? Let’s get started.
The book Playfull perspectives contains an empty page and that is not because I ran out of drawings or that it is a ‘design thing’. The page is reserved to make a drawing. It was one of my more successful actions in my crowdfunding campaign. And as every disadvantage has its advantage, I can also make a drawing for you on this page! It goes without saying that the book will then be signed. A unique gift, especially for art and book lovers and/or fans of my works.
The chair that is increasingly leaving its ‘frame’ and running into the world presented itself for the first time in the form of ‘Stoelgang‘ in 2010. After that followed, among other things, Relax chair III and in this case Sit.
A chair that also stretches your legs. You will have to stand all your life!
Mart Stam is the inventor of the free-floating tubular frame, ‘Freischwinger’ as it is called much nicer in German. He shared his find with his colleagues at the Bauhaus in the 1920s in Dessau (Germany). This revolutionary discovery led to an explosion of variants all over the world. Many lawsuits have been conducted about it. Marcel Breuer was one of the first to have a commercial copy on the market. I literally interwoven two drawings, one of Mart Stam’s first cantilever and Breuer’s first. A bit like it was the case with their life and work.

A chair that also relaxes for a moment. You will have to stand all your life!
A clockmaker’s chair and perhaps also for a clockmaker. With your back to time you might lose it for a while, a blessing in our hectic times. The freestanding klokkenstoelen are known especially in the north of the Netherlands. These will sound at set times and this one when you spend some time on it.
The slender, playful shapes of the classic Thonet chair come to life thanks to this doubling of the number of legs. The extra bend in these legs also provides a springy property with guaranteed dynamics.
