David Hoppenbrouwers's Hoek Af Table, Chairs

David Hoppenbrouwers Presents The Hoek Af Table, Chairs

David Hoppenbrouwers, the project leader of the award winning work David Hoppenbrouwers's Hoek af table, chairs explains, “Hoek af “ literally translated in English means "missing a corner", but when you say somebody misses a corner in dutch it means they are a little bit crazy. I was thinking about these words while i was thinking of a friend 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, 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 two legs..
