Royal Tichelaar Makkum: Pyramids of Makkum
by sabine7 / April 23, 2008
Royal Tichelaar Makkum, the oldest company in the Netherlands, is a ceramics firm that recently completed an amazing project that involved contemporary riffs on a 17th century flower pyramid. The present-day pyramids were part of an exhibit in Milan during Design Week 2008. Jurgen Bey, Hella Jongerius, Alexander van Slobbe and Studio Job were commissioned to create 21st century pyramids and the results of these limited edition ceramics are spectacular (as are the prices). The pyramids are incredibly detailed and each shows a different personality. Shown above is detail from the work by Jurgen Bey, which also included a wooden armoire filled with smaller ceramic pieces. Studio Job was easy to recognize, Hella Jongerius created a hanging pyramid and the Alexander van Slobbe had a softness to it.
