Lie back


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

Braakman’s gaze

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.



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

Looking back


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


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



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.

Swing II

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.

Babel’s end II

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?


Familyportrait II


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.



(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.



The back of a fairly common school chair is attached with two conspicuous screws (eyes!). Then the mouth can also fall open: pacman ehh Backman! This drawing is indebted to an earlier 2018 entitled (S) Eat.


Pinocchio III


Pinocchio and Pinocchio II preceded it. Pinocchio shows its unbridled growth here and can no longer be blocked by any frame. Gepetto’s intervention is required!


Pinocchio II


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.

Encounter II

Cees Braakman’s SB02 appears to miss a mouth when he meets this school chair with a striking recess in the backrest. Thus this schoolchair may now realize that he/she is missing ‘something’, although he/she is not able to see it. But we do! See also Pair.



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.
