« The sphere is an object without a precise function. Its function is to make us think, to arouse an emotion. You can put a drink on it, maybe you can sit down, or you can roll it around, but it's not about function, it is rather a strong feeling that it conveys. »
Taking nature as his basis, Kaspar Hamacher, Eupen, (B) is focused resolutely on physical rather than conceptual design. As he says himself, he feels more craftsman than designer. The things he can do with wood appeal to the imagination. Whether it is a tree stump or a piece of leather, the key is authenticity in every step of his design process. Hamacher’s working method always results in a unique, personal piece. A piece of design with a deeper meaning; with a soul.
In the film Kaspar Hamacher presents his work on burnt wood spheres.
