Rope 5.5 / 11

In 2018 I created the artwork ‘Rope’: a rope of 60 meters in length and 30 cm in diameter. Rope has been made disproportionately large and has therefore lost its function. Rope makes me travel the world, looking for meaning from connections with people and things. Thanks Rope!

Besides creating a great artwork, I tumbled in to the world of design an reinvented seating without realizing it. Ropes of 11 and 5.5 meters are currently being used by cities, companies and private customers, to create temporary social spaces, to play and to knot shapes and encounters.

I worked together with textile designer Esther van Schuylenbergh on four new designs for these Ropes.

Rope has its own website:
