    'Who needs a chair if you can sit under a tree?'
In the designs are function, comfort and usefulness confronted with
eachother so the field of thought will be enlarged. This all for a bigger
interaction for men as a consumer and his surroundings as a product.
Codes and rules will fade and men will discover its own interpretation
towards daily life.

    BONE made by Anthony Kleinepier
    A selection of soft living-improvement products, made of stiched
    floorcovering. Now tried and tested on different species in various
    laboratories around the globe.
    He's looking forward to share his world, you are invited!

"while the world turns"

    settings by Anthony Kleinepier / TTTVo
    Every now and then we were given the opportunity to create a special
    presentation with our works into a world of their own. These settings, as
    we like to call them, offered a solid ground for visitors to interact with our
    works. And by introducing various events inside these settings we seek
    to make their encounter even more layered.
    With this total concept we have taken on the creative freedom to explore
    the potential capabilities of our daily practice. Our focus is neither posing
    a product particularly nor furnishing comfort or good taste. But to propose
    a different way of perceiving our daily environment and to show how
    things relate to each others presence, creating a new lively unexpected
    By time these settings have become one continuing story and so we felt it
    was time to grab those moments into a solid book that can inspire our
    viewers with fresh energy to stir their own imagination.
    'while the world turns' shows a stream of images of the settings which
    Anthony Kleinepier & TTTVO have collaborated over the last 5 years.
