GLIM, a collaboration with Jordie Rovers.
Gijs Kuijpers. A young hard-headed designer who presents his work under the name Eigengijs. His focus lays on making furniture and interior objects. He always try to give his work an extra dimension through its design, using method or by storytelling.
During DDW Eigengijs will show his new furniture collection 'Magpie'. This collection came from his feeling of disapproval for the current consumer/disposable society and the underestimated value of old craft furniture. The explanation for the name 'Magpie' quickly will become clear when you visit the exposition!
As a small child he had the luck of growing up on a farm, where there was no lack of space. Always many different materials to find to give a lot of inspiration. When Gijs is at work in his studio, looking outside through the windows, he see an endless (green) field. This view without any form of disturbance provides great concentration and headspace for inspiration.
