October – November 2006
Established and respected Dutch designer, Piet Hein Eek is returning to the Rabih Hage Gallery in October to exhibit his inspirational Scrapwood pieces and his new exciting furniture and accessories.
“Piet is a poet as well as designer. There is a strong personal aesthetic which in my opinion is going to mark an era and be characteristic of the current decade in design - where the environment and recycling are seriously recognized by designers as important issues that need consideration in their work. Piet has been a pioneer of design since the Nineties and has created a strong recognisable aesthetic, which is why I chose to show the work of Piet in 2005. The book of Piet Hein Eek confirms my profound conviction that Piet is a true design maverick with an artist's sensibility. I admire the writing of Max Fraser and am impressed by the prolific creativity of Piet Hien Eek that is compiled in Boek.” Rabih Hage.
This book illustrates, in chronological order, a comprehensive insight into the working method of Piet Hein Eek and his partner Nob Ruijgrok, marking their achievements over the past fifteen years. It is a monumental book about the work and significance of one of the most authentic and amiable exponents of Dutch Design.
