Forest for the Trees
2003, MDF lasercutted coatstand

Once there were times in which we made a bowl with our hands and took water from a river, a big stone would do to sit and branches of trees offert plenty of space to hang all kinds of things on, or they were construction for a hut or playhouse. Ineke Hans is interested in the down-to-earth side of human behaviour and plays a game with this.Forest for the Trees is a coatstand from one sheet of through and through black MDF
The first version of Forest for the Trees was made out of MDF and was first shown at Ineke’s successful presentation TRUE LIFE in the period rooms of the Haags Gemeentemuseum in Holland. The coatstand is in the collection of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.Since spring 2005 Forest for the Trees is produced by Lensvelt in metal.
