Coffee Corner

The work Coffee Corner was created in the framework of an art integration process for the De Schoor Service Center in Schorvoort and provides a response to the need for an informal meeting place for the users of the building. A place is created in the open, central hall by pushing a still life of furniture at an oblique angle into the wall. This gesture is not only a response to the limited space available. As in other works by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, the installation evokes a multitude of associations and explores the boundaries between disciplines. A series of fragments (a countertop, cupboard, table, lamp and chairs) play with the boundary between functional furniture and a sculptural ensemble. This tension is heightened by the uniform light green colour of the furniture, which starkly contrasts with the subdued colours of the space.
