Kleine Teun (2014)

As part of a larger project, I was asked to make a decor for a theatre performance based on the movie Kleine Teun by Alex van Warmerdam. The decorative piece had to function as a seating object and it had to be easy to move. The inspiration for this design derives from a scene in the film, where the viewer gets inside the barn next to the house. In this barn there is a staircase leading to the attic. At one part in the movie this staircase breaks and one of the protagonists almost falls to his dead.

During this project I mostly worked on the design and concept and my partner did the realization of the chair. The both of us build and painted the panel that served as a training for realistic painting. Our theme for the panel was rust since the chair was based on the old rusty stairs.

This project was a collaboration with Anne Zwart
