The art of taking side ways, exploring the possibilities of two-dimensional forms in three dimensions. Shifting and evolving, moving back and forth between autonomous projects and more applied and functional designs. Happy end-of-year everyone!
“This is Casimir’s ‘truth’. The multifaceted ‘truth’ that he wants to formulate in and with this book. A book that wants to be an example of deconstruction in terms of its form, graphically and technically, and that wants to be open to self-fulfilment, for example by separating text and images. And like a Lego block, it is a book that aims to rekindle and stimulate the reader’s fantasy, just like Casimir’s furniture.” Marc Holthof
4 Texts / 4 writers. Each writer approaches the oeuvre from a different angle, based on their specialty. Francis Smets frames the works as furniture art, Marc Holthof's text is based on multiple interviews with Casimir, Virginia Tassinari writes about Casimir's layered work from a cultural-philosophical perspective and Fredie Floré reflects in a cultural-historical way on his furniture making.
The limited edition of The Book is with bookend named 'Border.' Border places The Book across the border of the book row. Border is the semiotic translation of the main content of The Book.
Book published by Hopper & Fuchs, printed at Stockmans Art Books.

As part of the Casimir/Indera collaboration, an initial series of seven small furniture pieces have been given the name Folded, which refers to the source of the furniture artist’s inspiration: the Japanese folding art of origami. We have kept the communication in the same philosophy. A new brochure that folds and unfolds in a special way.
Om jongeren tussen 10 en 20 jaar preventiever te ondersteunen hebben we samen met TEJO en enkele andere organisaties een reizende belevingsexpo uitgewerkt. De expo WE(L) ZIJN JONG! focust op drie belangrijke thema’s: het persoonlijk welzijn van jongeren, hun rechten en waar ze hulp vinden wanneer ze het moeilijk hebben. De expo nodigt iedereen uit om op een creatieve en participatieve manier deel te nemen en te bouwen aan een beter welzijn voor álle jongeren. De belevingsexpo is nog tot 28 januari 2022 te bezoeken in het Maagdenhuis.

We’re thrilled to announce that our new calendar project "Eight Days a Week, Thirteen Months a Year" is printed and ready for distribution.
The calendar is used to playfully denounce the rat race of daily life and to compensate for lack of time. "Eight Days a Week, Thirteen Months a Year" indicates more time for oneself and especially for the people you care about! Part of the profits of this project will go to Tejo, an organisation dedicated to vulnerable young people between 10–20 years old.
