CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker Projects

Gijs Bakker (1942) is a renowned Dutch jewellery and industrial designer. In 1996, Bakker co-founded ‘chp…?’ , which will cease to exist after 23 years. With this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

About CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker Projects

Gijs Bakker wanted to show the international design world that a piece of jewellery is more than a decorative fashion accessory. For ‘chp…?’, originality of the concept is central to the design and is supported by a fitting choice of material and technology. 
By showing that jewellery design evolves just like any other design discipline, ‘chp…?’ fills an existing void by making designer jewelry more widely accessible. ‘chp…?’ invited internationally acclaimed designers to create special pieces for the collection. All first prototypes ever made of designs for ‘chp…?’ are in the collection of the Design Museum Den Bosch. After 23 years ‘chp…?’ will cease to exist and with this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

Love is fragile. This porcelain heart can be struck and easily damaged by the little titanium hammer. But it will remain intact because of the rubber layer inside. The cracks signify the wearer’s grief, anger or disappointment.

The necklace is not worn, but has some black marks on the porcelain heart as shown on the second and fourth picture. The last picture serves as an illustration and is not the current state of the object.

Frank Tjepkema graduated cum laude from the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 1996. Frank's graduation project on artificial nature drew immediate attention and was selected for the Droog Design collection. His relationship with Droog led to a succession of notable projects like the Do Break in 2000, the award-winning British Airways Executive Lounge at Heathrow in 2004 and the Chair of Textures presented during Art Basel Miami Beach 2006 (a Droog project in collaboration with gallery Friedman Benda).

Frank started Tjep. in 2001. In parallel to leading the studio, Frank Tjepkema provokes audiences worldwide through his art and exhibition pieces, such as the Recession Chair, Bling Bling and Oogst. Frank’s work can be found in the world’s most influential galleries including Moss in New York, Droog in Amsterdam, and in major design exhibitions such as the Museum fur Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg and Museum of Art and Design in New York. “I seek to create a body of work that reflects contemporary society, the times we live in. These pieces can have a certain irony yet are created with love for the subject. My more engaged and artistic approach to design can be found in gallery pieces and in the Tjep.collection. Tjep.studio is aimed at working with a broad range of clients to create outstanding design projects infused with Tjep. soul."

Frank has lectured at many design academies in the Netherlands and abroad including the Design Academy Eindhoven, the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam (Head of Department from 2001-2004), Universidad Iberoamericana Mexico City, Iceland Academy of The Arts Reykjavik, and The Acadia Summer Arts Program Maine USA. He has also lectured in Japan (Nagoya Design Center), Malaysia, Spain and Hungary. Frank Tjepkema has been an invited speaker at major conferences such as Design Indaba (twice), What Design Can Do and Singapore Design Challenge 2050.

Frank has also been a member of the board of the Premsela Foundation, a member of the examination commission at the Dutch Foundation for Art and Design and juror for the Dutch Design Awards and Françoise van der Bosch Award.
