    Gerard Kuijpers

    For thirty five years Gerard Kuijpers, autodidact, has been researching the essential qualities of steel, stone glass and wood. In this way he meets the core of his materials, where after he uses the power of their interaction. Glass becomes even more transparent, steel even stronger; while wood obtains more warmth, stone becomes eternal. Moreover, even more fundamental opposites arise: resistance versus movement, severity versus organic, and usability versus poetry. So, in searching the boundaries of the materials, he creates objects that radiate simplicity and become timeless.

    GĂ©rard Kuijpers had gallery exhibitions and art fairs worldwide, and his works are part of the most prestigious collectible design collections.
