Tjep. at Prague Designblok
Hosted by Designblok Prague and presented in the wonderful Ballroom of the Colloredo Mansfeld Palace, Tjep. has the pleasure and honour of presenting it's latest body of work: Bronze Age.
Bronze Age comes from the same design roots as the much-acclaimed Recession Chair project.
“Bronze Age collection contains all hand-crafted pieces, using traditional skills that once underpinned our very survival, each piece a manually intensive work and formed from the material that represents the dawn of civilisation. For this project I wanted to create something totally opposite to the technology driven trends based on the emergence of new digital tools such as 3d printing. I like the idea that bronze is precious and is therefor implicitly sustainable, it is either preserved or remelted but never discarded, who knows maybe these pieces contain a couple of remelted ancient bronze swords!” Says Frank Tjepkema, lead designer and founder of Tjep.Alongside the new collection, Tjep. will be exhibiting other recent works such as Il Treno, and Tjep.’s unique jewelry line.
