Royal Tichelaar Makkum Pyramids of Makkum | Studio Makkink & Bey $100,000>

The company’s complex restoration of a seventeenth-century flower pyramid, one of the most prized pieces in the Rijksmuseum, prompted it to assign the 2008 project Pyramids of Makkum to four designers with whom the company felt it had a very close relationship. Studio Makkink & Bey was asked to come up with a contemporary response to the flower tower. They had to keep to the idea of an ‘ornamental vase’ and stay within the dimensions of the original flower tower. The designers were at liberty to include any aspect of the historical context or tower they so desired. ""Buckets used to be made from wood, leather or metal: today plastic reigns. The flower tower is an ode to the collector, in whose hoard of curiosities the ceramic vase has evolved to become the plastic bucket's equivalent"" - Jurgen Bey. Limited edition of 7 + 2 AP.
