This baptise bowl is inspired on a sprout that unfolds its very first leaf thus representing a new life. The holy water is like its dew drops in which the baby is baptized. In this beautiful church, the stained-glass windows have been lost in a fire and replaced by plain transparent glass. In this light-flooded space, the stone patterns in the high pointed arched windows then became the most significant details in the church. I took the drop shapes in the windows as an inspiration and created a family of related shapes to become the liturgical furniture for this imposing church.

Organic Architecture & Furniture. Steam bent, laminated & sculpted shapes inspired by nature. Artistic & Functional.

Tim's work field moves between architecture, art and craft. In his Utrecht based studio he designs and builds bespoke interiors and high-end wooden furniture. Tim has a great fascination for the ways in which nature constructs itself. It has led him to design pieces inspired by natural growth forms and phenomena such as the wind, currents in water or the flight of birds.
To push the boundaries of what is possible with wood, he uses steam bending and laminating techniques. His pieces go far beyond the functional and become Art.
