dutch furniture designer piet hein eek first gained notoriety in 1990 with his ‘scrap wood cupboards’.
he works with found wood and salvaged materials and uses them for intricately patchwork tables, chairs,
sofas… the thinking behind his work is partly a desire to rescue these discarded pieces of wood but also to
escape the soullessness of mass production. in eek’s work we can draw analogies to amish furniture, dutch
architects like oud and rietveld, jean prouvé’s parisian atelier, and even donald judd’s furniture.
but the references are subtle and spiritual rather than blatant, and eek’s work developed to an undeniably
own personal statement.
