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.

The Bamboo Diamond is a stack of bamboo sticks. It gives a play of light while the light passes two layers. The lamp is made with drop out boys from the community. They have had never learnt to count properly… when we started the project. Now they ménage to handle 824 bamboo sticks of different sizes.
The Copper Lampshade is made of bamboo slices held together by copper wires stripped from old electricity cables. “From waste to wonder."This suspension light has been designed especially for our collaboration with the Pardeshi’s. We work with a group of underprivileged women to construct the lamp. The lamp consists of 13 sides. All women working on this project can make one piece at home while running the household in the mean time. When the sides are finished the parts blend together into this atmospheric light.
