Bronze Age, 2014
“As a reaction to the unstoppable digitalisation and virtualisation of all our basic needs, all the way to love and friendship, I feel an urge to produce work that is antagonistic to this trend.’ Says Frank Tjepkema, lead designer and founder of dutch studio Tjep. Set within the historic and ornately decorated ballroom of the colloredo mansfeld palace in prague, Tjep. Presents the bronze age collection for Designblok Prague 2014, with designboom in attendance. The series embodies both sculptural and utilitarian principles: stability, strength, durability and sustainability, in that it can be melted and reused. each sensually formed piece is a manually intensive work, formed from the very material that represents the dawn of civilization: bronze. via designboom.com
