Part of the exhibition RESET at the Salone Del Mobile, Milan, 2016.  

I made a work around the question of functionality. I created cloths with photo-prints of the specific spot and tried to let the chair disappear. When needed I revealed the chairs to bring them back in function. 

The Dutch word ‘Opdoeken’ has a double meaning. Opdoeken; to fold and put away the sails; originally used in offshore sailing.
Opdoeken; to dissolve an organization, let cease to exist.
