SANDER VAN HEUKELOM
The Original Fat Cap Chair is a design of the Dutch graphic designer Sander van Heukelom. He began experimenting with typographic design and graffiti as a teenager. The use of the spray can still characterizes many of his art creations. He developed the chair from his vision that beauty is to be found in small things – in this case in the cap of a spray can. In his current work he uses many other different materials, such as styrofoam, plexiglas, synthetic resin and wood. He draws his inspiration from his extensive travels. After five years spent travelling around the world and teaching kite surfing on several continents, Sander’s creativity has taken wing. He is now known especially for his three-dimensional typographic sculpture, paintings with spray can and resin and of course The Original Fat Cap Chair.
Florian Karnik is a gallerist running his own gallery EISDIELE for contemporary art in Nürnberg / Germany. He takes care of the distribution of The Original Fat Cap Chair in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
