Story of 'Brickchair'
‘Brickchair’ is a reaction on a drawing made by James Gulliver Hancock. Pepe’s interpretation changed the chair into (second hand) children’s bricks. He wanted to stretch the possibilities of the material to its limits: the Brick Chandelier evolved. With a diameter of 2.70 meter this chandelier amazes by the combination of being both playful and technical at the same time.
About the drawing of James Gulliver Hancock: ”My eye was caught by his type of drawing, it looks like a child has been drawing with a great eye for detail.” His handwriting changed the chair once (into a drawing), Pepe’s interpretation changed it again: into bricks. Evolution on a small scale. In short, the project is about interpretation and imagination. After getting the structure under control in the chair, he wanted to stretch the possibilities of the material to its limits: the Brick Chandelier evolved”
