Wrapped in rubber by Wout wessemius

Rubber is one of my favourite materials. Initially I used rubber to create interior objects. I was curious about what you could do with used rubber inner tubes from the possibilities of this specific material. So, for example, I stretched a rubber inner tube around a part of an object, while another part of the tube almost careless folded. The mirror, for example, shows this way of using. This allows the forms to come into existence almost by itself. This gives the objects often an organic and natural look.

Over the years I’ve wrapped my recreation house and outbuildings in Friesland in rubber so they have a scaly skin now. The rubber endures the test of time, works as a form of heat insulation and the annual painting of the buildings belongs to the past. Last but not least, I like the buildings this way.

About Wout Wessemius 
Initially Wout Wessemius mainly designs interior objects in acrylic glass. Pretty soon raw and natural materials are added, such as copper, lead, rubber, concrete, steel and wood. Often these are residual materials he picks up from the junkyard. Old lead water pipes, rubber inner tubes, or a rusty piece of iron gain a second life in an object.

Forms of nature inspire him and this fascination gives many of his designs a fluid, playful and sometimes whimsical appearance. He likes to experiment with the possibilities and impossibilities of the materials he works with. As such, his designs often come into existence in a playful manner.
