The Holes Collection by Gijs Bakker was informed and originally incepted in 1989 as a project commissioned for the POI (Product of Imagination) Foundation’s ‘Chair Sweet Chair’ exhibition. The institution selected design-artists to revisit an existing chair design. Bakker subsequently designed a wide range of products with this thesis in mind. 

 

Beginning with a simple, unvarnished chair in maple wood, on four straight legs, Bakker lightened the piece both literally and visually through the application of ‘holes’ that reduced the weight of the chair by almost a third. This decoration has a regularity dictated by function. The bigger the demands on the construction of the chair, the smaller the holes became on the piece. All pieces are manufactured at the designer’s long-time collaborators’ workshops in the Netherlands.

 

The Chair with Holes belongs to significant private and institutional collections around the world including the Rotterdam’s Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, the Centraal Museum (Utrecht, NL), as well as the Philadelphia Museum of Art Permanent Collections (Courtesy of Helen Drutt: Philadelphia)
