Henk Stallinga

The self-designed home of the Designer

Four Hara Chairs, geometric chairs designed for the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo border the staid dining table. The Lumenbalance, a long rectangular lamp hanging from one electrical cord above the table is also one of Stallinga's own designs. Henk Stallinga sitting in a Aluminium Chair by Ray & Charles Eames for Vitra. Plant designed by Bioartist Reinier Lagendijk, who used special grafting techniques to manipulate the plants into seemingly impossible shapes. The original ventilation pipes have been left intact. The two Turn Towers -tall, slim cabinets- are also designed by Stallinga and can rotate 360 degrees. A true eye catcher in the Stallinga home is Tunnel Vision, a prototype of a sumptuous television, stretching along the concrete column. The stainless steel kitchen unit is a design from Henk Stallinga for Bosch & Siemens Hausgeräte for the MOMA in New York. This plant exists out of grafted leaves, a creation by Bioartist Reinier Lagendijk. Stallinga has sectioned of the bathroom by a wall of glass and a simple white curtain for privacy purposes. The bathtub is Edition 2 by Philippe Starck for Hoesch. A vintage chair serves as a bedside cabinet. All the walls and ceilings in Stallinga's appartment are painted white. In fact, the house is really nothing more than steel, glass and concrete, according Stallinga. The Focus clocks, a mosaic of red clocks designed by Stallinga, displays the time in the designstudio. Four contributors work in Stallinga's designstudio. On the wall  examples of Clockwork Orange, designed by Stallinga and at the right the Coat Hammer Jut, a hammer serving as coat rack.

An impossible perspective with endless depth and reflection. The wardrobe is nothing more than a serie of clothes hangers attached to simple hooks in the ceiling. Underneath two Clamp Chairs. The clamps hold the chair together simultaneously creating sturdy chair legs. One wall at Stallinga's designstudio has been decorated with Focus Clocks. Two rounded fluorescent lamps hover above the bureaus, bearing a striking resemblance to gymnastic rings.
