hang lamp, fruit bowl
PP-rope, steelmolds, heatgun

‘Ingewikkeld’ or ‘complicated’ in Dutch is a series of bowls and lamps, results of an material experiment. These objects are entirely made of plastic rope (polypropene) by coiling it around a hot steel mold. This controled melting fixades the rope so the mold can be removed.

The inside is turned into a smooth candy-like surface that makes nice contrast with the rope outside.
For the second edition see ingewikkeld.016.  Rein is looking out for a factory or designlabel that is able to develop this technique for  production.
