pepe heykoop: 'brick' collection and 'soft oak chair' at the 'dutch invertuals' exhibition

‘brickchair’ by pepe heykoop – made of over 1000 bricks glued together

dutch designer pepe heykoop‘s ‘brick’ collection and ‘soft oak chair’ will be exhibited as a part of the ‘dutch invertuals‘ during the milan design week 09.

in the exhibition, a group of independent designers from eindhoven, united by their common vision in design, present their latest work. the exhibition has been made possible in collaboration with the italian label verger. the former design academy students explore familiar materials and show them out of their usual context. location: via varese 1, moscova subway station.
