KABINET (JAN) VAN LOOK | ROTARY & NEBULA
Founded by the autodidact Jan Van Look, the studio inititially worked exclusively in command, focusing on small-scale interior projects, but gradually moved to designing series, which are still handmade by the designer, upcycling what Van Look describes as "non-materials", such as OSB and plywood. In a similar way, his pieces turn basic geometric shapes into something far more complex and sculptural, defying given rules such as the ones on perception, gravity and function, and also breaking up, questioning, fragmenting and dynamizing the space where the land up. At the festival, Van Look will present his Rotary Collection, a floating series of open cabinets and shelves that are all but at right angles with their supporting wall and almost seem to disappear in it, in combination with the Nebula wall unit.
