Fabric or Bronze?…”Dressed” Collection by Jens Praet

At first glance, Jens Praet’s collection of sculptural furniture pieces appear to have fabric draped over solid forms.  Look more closely and you will see these ‘sheets’ are actually bronze!

The lovely verdigris patina of the ‘draped’ bronze produces a notable contrast to the brushed brass of the main structures.  These pieces truly are functional pieces of sculptural art.
