DESTRUCTION AND CREATION

NOTHING CAN BE CREATED WITHOUT DESTRUCTION.

HUMANS HAVE TO BE MORE CAREFUL WITH HOW AND WHAT THEY DESTROY IN THE PROCESS OF PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION, IN ORDER TO RESTORE THE NATURAL BALANCE BETWEEN DESTRUCTION AND CREATION.

KOEN VAN EECKHOUTTE RECOGNISES THE BEAUTY OF TRANSIENCE AND IMPERFECTION IN THE RE-USE OF LOST AND/OR BROKEN MATERIALS, EMPHASISING A CIRCULAR ECONOMY. HE FOLLOWS THE JAPANESE CONCEPT OF WABI-SABI BOTH IN HIS OWN CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE MATERIAL’S HERITAGE.

ALL THE MATERIAL USED TO MAKE A VAN EECKHOUTTE WAS EITHER FOUND BY THE MAKER ON THE STREET, GIFTED BY MOVERS, OR BOUGHT FROM PROGRESSIVE TIMBER MANUFACTURERS (UNDER LICENSES OF JONGENEEL: FSC’’C020700, FSC’’C019958 AND BOUWMAAT: FSC’’C022354, SCS-PEFC/COC-005358).
