Design by JAN PAUL
Constructed from 96 Eiffel-tower-models.
The object is part of a series in progress “Lalalandmarks” consisting of designs /sculptures based on famous landmarks.
It can be seen as a comment on mass production, mass tourism, national identity, and consumption.
It can also be seen as just an interesting beautiful object.
The design of the Eiffel tower is enormously overproduced, used in souvenirs, prints, posters, commercials, coffee mugs etc. Its iconic shape is grown larger than the tower itself. Using mass-produced souvenirs as a building block: I created a new object
Status: unique item, certificate of authenticity signed by the maker.
Based in: Maastricht
Creator of objects, eye-candy, and conversation-pieces.
“JAN PAUL” is created as a platform for more personal, conceptual, autonomous, and experimental designs. Crossing over boundaries between design and art. Setting work free from boxes and demands.
“I want to create with no concessions and fully explore and crystallize the ideas I have. One idea turns into a clean sleek designed table , the other into a sculptural object without a specific function. Reoccurring themes and directions of thought are the beauty of multiplicity, the marvel hidden in everyday objects, reinterpretation of icons ,exploring the boundaries of new materials, creating the new from the existing.“
The collection consists of objects, furniture, lighting and functional art, made in small series, limited editions and one-of-a-kind’s.Organically growing and carefully directed. The small and exclusive collection is produced in the Netherlands. All work for sale through the website and selected dealers and galleries.
