Dennis Slootweg makes eye catchers that have a practical functionality, often as single copies or in a very limited edition. His designs come into being while building, using traditional metal working machines, often during prolonged periods and based on one theme. His awareness of materials, craftsmanship and experimentation result in a language of forms that is both subdued and monumental, and in pieces of furniture with a clear and recognizable signature.
Recycling with a difference
In Dennis Slootweg’s collections, old materials that are marked by the ravages of time – such as industrial waste, often metals - ,are given a surprisingja second life. Not through assembling, but genuinely custom-made. In his own words: ‘I like to play with expectations. Completely new products, like my Rust Cupboards made of old metal, thus still invoke a feeling of recognition – almost immediately followed by the sense that there is more at stake.’
