Descrizione
Govert Heikoop (1951-2007) - Frigate-Bird 1
Scultura in legno - Firmato a mano - 1988

This image is part 1 of a series of 2. They can hang together or on their own. Goof (my late husband) almost never worked horizontally. But in this image there are also clear vertical elements.
He had discovered the quality of the flexible aircraft triplex. He knew this from his studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in MI, USA, to which Charles Eames had been attached long before his time. Eames' influence was still noticeable. The famous Eames chair is the first or one of the first designs in which the aircraft triplex was used. The quality that it could be bent and glued dry opened up a lot of new possibilities in design and art. Goof has continued to use it his whole life.
