Three-Legged Skin Lamp by Pepe Heykoop

$3,000.31

About

In the industry lots of material is wasted. After finding out over 25% of any leather skin ends up in leftovers I was inspired to create the Skin collection. While researching this phenomenon it was clear that this is the common result in producing leather sofas, bags and jackets. Nearly the entire Leather industry deals with the fact that the animals shape does not meet their patterns. The amount of leather scraps shocked me. In reaction upon that I started to collect the offcuts. Randomly putting them together applying them as a new skin to existing objects. I have had the habit ever since to collect damaged or discarded furniture’s from the street and flea markets and collected them at my studio. Skin collection makes use of merging these types of frames for its skeleton, a skin of leather leftovers growing as a cell like structure covering the objects. We do custom editions as well so get in contact if you want your item to be skinned. Year - 2011- ongoing material - leather remnants, discarded objects.

About the Maker

Studio Pepe Heykoop

Pepe Heykoop (1984) studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, graduated in 2008. Studio Pepe Heykoop was founded in 2009, while his collaboration with Tiny Miracles started in 2010. The work of Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop straddles two worlds—the collectible pieces made in his Amsterdam studio, and the retail products made with women in a slum in Mumbai, India, as part of the Tiny Miracles Foundation, setup by his cousin. Yet these two facets of his practice are not incompatible. Both reflect Heykoop’s idealism and vision as a designer, both enable his exploration in the handmade. Recycling is at the heart of many of Heykoop’s designs, turning waste into wonder. Multiple award winning products and nominations underline his vision. Pepe's unique works are sold to collectors in the field. Recently the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum NY acquired a piece of his Skin Collection.
