Boris de Beijer
Boris de Beijer graduated in 2011 at the Rietveld Academy within the department Jewellery Design. However nowadays, the boundaries among disciplines fade in his work. It often lies between sculpture and design. As a modern alchemist De Beijer creates surprising and remarkable objects in which form and functionality are ambivalent. During the making process, he examines the characteristics of materials and structures and eventually tries to manipulate these.
He works with polyurethane, a plastic that he transforms from something ordinary, to something unique and outstanding. The objects are strongly appealing, because of the tactility of the material and his outstanding craftsmanship. It is contemporary, but yet refers to a distant past.
