The Brick Chair is a reaction on a drawing made by James Gulliver Hancock. Pepe’s interpretation changed the chair into (second hand) children’s bricks. He wanted to stretch the possibilities of the material to its limits: the Brick Chandelier evolved. With a diameter of 2.70m, it amazes many. Pepe about the drawing of James Gulliver Hancock: ''My eye was caught by his type of drawing, it looks like a child has been drawing with a great eye for detail.'' His handwriting changed the chair once (into a drawing), Pepe's interpretation changed it again: into bricks. Evolution on a small scale. In short, the project is about interpretation and imagination. After getting the structure under control in the chair, he wanted to stretch the possibilities of the material to its limits: the Brick Chandelier evolved. With a diameter of 2.65 meter this chandelier amazes by the combination of being both playful and technical at the same time.
Material: second hand wooden blocks, steel.

Lightness Of Being is a giant flexible lamp of 3.5m. The inside is full of technique though its look refers to a giant fairy-tale flower from Alice in Wonderland. The base is 75 kg, the stem weighs only 700 grams. This is equal to 1% of its total weight. To switch the light you pull the felt slowly over the stem and the 'flower' closes, and so does the light... The movement of the lamp is based upon the reaction of flowers to light. It seems that flowers hardly move, though when this is filmed in a time lapse you will find out that they have lots of movement in them following the sun. When light comes in only from the side plants can grow in spectacular ways. So can this 3.5-meter long lamp. It will find its way in extreme positions without the technical looks.
The Tapepot evolved from an earlier project named 'conversations'. In second hand shops the items are often organized in groups. These teapots were standing close together. With a roll of tape Pepe merged them into one, this became the shape for making the mold. The inside has merged. Material: Porcelain, glaze
Size: L20 x W30 x H25 cm
