Willem van Hoof is a Dutch designer that focuses on the ability of forgotten techniques, products and materials. He likes to visualize these forgotten 'stories' and give them a new future.
CORE is a serie of vessels, inspired by prehistoric African building techniques.
Willem van Hooff has been fascinated by vessels since they have such a clear and easy function. Their main function is to hold and transport water but besides that, it has been a canvas for humanity to express themselves with.
When he started to express himself through these objects, a new form of language came out. He wants to challenge the contour of vessels by bringing them out of balance. Each vessel contains a hidden chamber that brings the vessels back into balance by the weight of the water they cary.lead time: unique piece, in stock
