All week at Blok 63-S | Strijp-S By hartwerp

Hartwerp is Lien Van Deuren.

Hartwerp isdesign of space, objects, furniture and graphics.It all starts with a feeling. For whatever, whoever, whenever, however.If I feel it, I do it. With intuition.Because if you do something, it's always better when it comes from the heart.

Hartwerpwill show three recent works from 2017 and 2018.

  • 'Esperando las olas'is a dreamy high rocking chair. It's created to make the life of every frustrated Cuban or Belgian surfer - who is daily confronted with the fact there are no waves to catch - more comfortable. For those who are not living by the beach, it might be a helpfull object to have a look into your neighbours life.
  • 'Beziehung' is a prototype of a table for two. It's inspired by my all time favorite artist Egon Schiele. Beziehung is a mix of erotism and romanticism. It's exciting to sit on and she will make you blush.
  • 'zonder zonde' (sinless)is a series of eightpublic spacefurniture,with the aim to stimulate intimacy between two users. One design creates psychological intimacy, the other one is more physical. Four of the pieces are inspired by senses (smell, hearing, seeing and feeling). The other four are based on the Kama Sutra. These last ones are - without a doubt - more physical and require some agility.

You are more then welcome to touch, climb and feel.
