GRIP coffee

Sculptural, brutalistic, monolithic Coffee table /side table/ object
design: JAN PAUL

Four shapes flow to the center to swirl, weave, and grip each other. Firmly holding on to form
A sculptural, powerful , iconic object made out of solid bamboo using modern materials and techniques.
The idea was to create an a-typical construction and make that the center of attention.
Also inspired by traditional decorating woodcarvings.
Gentle Brutalism.
The monolithic shape is cut out of high pressed caramelized bamboo.
The bamboo surface is sanded smooth to reveal the materials beautiful grains, subtle color-tones ,lines and details.
A natural oil-finish enhances and brings depth and warmth to the caramel color and structure.

Creator of objects, eye-candy, and conversation-pieces.

JAN PAUL” is created as a platform for more personal, conceptual, autonomous, and experimental designs. Crossing over boundaries between design and art. Setting work free from boxes and demands.

“I want to create with no concessions and fully explore and crystallize the ideas I have. One idea turns into a clean sleek designed table , the other into a sculptural object without a specific function. Reoccurring themes and directions of thought are the beauty of multiplicity, the marvel hidden in everyday objects, reinterpretation of icons ,exploring the boundaries of new materials, creating the new from the existing.“

The collection consists of objects, furniture, lighting and functional art, made in small series, limited editions and one-of-a-kind’s.Organically growing and carefully directed. The small and exclusive collection is produced in the Netherlands. All work for sale through the website and selected dealers and galleries.
