"Stitch is a family of discarded items found on the street or in the second hand shop," says Heykoop.

"We took care of them. They wear a handstiched skin stuffed with soft fibres. Shape starts to grow."

    Pepe, your idea of “taking care of” an object designed to be functional is to turn it into non-functional art?

    If anything, this I think is the opposite of taking care of, it denies the object it’s original purpose. Very archaic, in the same way that orphans used to be “cared for” by being institutionalized in asylums.

    Your design isn’t protection, it’s a straight jacket.

    Jouwe andere werk vind ik veel meer interressant.

    Very ‘Dutch design’… would love to see something more fresh, something that makes more sense.
