A meeting between Cees Braakman’s SB01 and an updated version of this model.
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?
A real exhibition at school? This is now possible with Stapelding.
All drawings and watercolors with only chairs. That seems very boring, but nothing could be further from the truth when you come face to face with Stapelding.
Sometimes the chairs are the building blocks of a huge tower, at other times they are themselves or a playground. Sometimes they even take on animal or human features, they come to life.
After all, who hasn’t played with chairs?
And can a chair also lounge? And is that called a lounger?
Stapelding prepares a seat for the children, but also kicks it out. First, of course, we look at the exhibition and then we get to work with the class: we make a kind of mise en scène, we dance, play and of course draw.
The accompanying box contains all necessary materials. The manual and some presentations will be sent by email in advance.
Stapelding is a careful selection from the many pencil drawings and watercolors that artist Herman Kuypers has made over the course of more than thirty years.
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.
A carefully arranged chaos of unique chairs tumbles down thus forming a pattern. The pattern we know; haughtiness that invariably comes before the trap. It is an even more spatial version of Babels end with in this case three layers. The confusion and dynamics are reinforced by the shadows that change depending on the light source(s).
Does it look like this when for example the Tower of Babel III collapses?

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.
The three-point backrest of Cees Braakman’s chair SB02 for Pastoe gives it human traits through the three circles. Eyes and nose or eyes and mouth, just how you represent it. The disc of round wood with which the screw openings are concealed can grow back and compared to my earlier Pinocchio it has a real nose that has actually grown.
The SB02, designed by Cees Braakman for Pastoe, with the characteristic circles in the backrest, offers plenty of opportunities to associate with. These circles hide the attachment for the backrest. However, they also form a face for those who look slightly differently. If such an opening is stopped with a round wood, Pinocchio actually appears automatically.
