In the shop of Atelier van Lieshout you can buy this chair, the Koker chair, made by a material amply available in Joep’s Atelier, steel tubes or kokers in Dutch, hence the name “Koker Stoel” for “Tube Chair”
German author Goethe wrote: “It is in self-limitation that a master first shows himself ”. This certainly holds true for the Koker Chair. Joep van Lieshout set himself the task of designing a chair using only the materials available in his workshop. He ended up using square metal tubes, known as kokers in Dutch.
