Hoek af Table, Chairs by David Hoppenbrouwers

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Hoek af

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table, Chairs

INSPIRATION:
I like language and how the meaning of words or sayings have to be interpreted, so when you start trying to use a word in as many ways as possible you come across strange or funny things. Somehow one of this sayings collided with a table that was slowly forming in the back of my head.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
“Hoek af “ literally translated in english means "missing a corner", but when you say somebody is missing a corner in dutch it means that they are a little bit crazy. I was thinking about these words while i was thinking of a friend of mine 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 that 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 thus two legs. When missing a corner you still have your other corners, the ones you always had since creation, this is the more classic part if you will; and then the extra corners are the more colorful part . For the table and the chairs the same rules apply, so the wood is the classic part and the colorful part is the colorful part.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Al the wood is oak, the legs are turned and then the wood got finished with a white parquet oil. The seat of the chairs is caned by hand, this is a very labor intensive process, but it is the strongest way of caning because it is possible to create a lot of tension.This way the cane doesn't snap as fast. The colorful parts are made from metal which is welded and than painted.
