Hoek Af Table, Chairs by David Hoppenbrouwers

Table, Chairs
“Hoek af “ literally translated in English means "missing a corner", but when you say somebody misses a corner in dutch it means they are a little bit crazy. I was thinking about these words while i was thinking of a friend who is “missing a corner”, so it became obvious to me that although he misses a corner he actually is more interesting. And than it struck me, if you take a square and you cut of a corner two new corners are created, meaning that instead of loosing something, something is won. Every piece of “hoek af” has lost a corner but won two corners and two legs.

“Hoek af” Hollandacada “bir köşesi eksik” anlamına gelmektedir. Fakat birisi için böyle dendiğinde o kişinin biraz deli olduğu anlamına gelir. Bu kelimeleri düşünürken, bir köşesi eksik olan bir arkadaşım aklıma geldi. Arkadaşımın bir köşesi eksik olmasına rağmen kendisi oldukça ilgi çekici bir insandı. Sonra düşündüm ki bir kareyi alıp bir köşesini keserseniz, iki köşe yaratmış olursunuz. Yani bir şey kaybetmek yerine bir şey kazanmış olursunuz. “Hoek af” serisinin her üyesi bir köşe kaybetmiştir ama iki köşe ve iki ayak kazanmıştır.
