Pyramids of Makkum Pyramids of Makkum : Royal Tichelaar Makkum

Royal Tichelaar Makkum
10 May - 16 June 2012

Following an elaborate restoration project of 17th century flower pyramids which Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum had then recently acquired, Royal Tichelaar Makkum  initated a prestigious project to create pyramids of its own. Tichelaar's craftsmen made an exact replica of one of the original pyramids, which subsequently served as starting point for a new interpretation of the pyramids by Dutch designers Hella Jongerius, Jurgen Bey, Studio Job and Alexander van Slobbe. The results - an impressive presentation of five sublime artefacts: the traditional replica and the four interpretations, all made in the original Faience technique - were exhibited for the first time in London in Spring 2012.
