Table Skin – Embroidery


Take an art piece of the Rijksmuseum home. DeJongeKalff made a white silicone cast of the elegant geometric “embroidery example with rectangular shield” carved in wood between 1507 – 1521 by Albrecht Dürer. The inverse engraving is a table cloth much like classical white damast table linen but durable, waterproof and easy to clean.

Material: silicon rubber, stretch textile. The tablecloth can be cleaned using warm water and soap, don’t use bleach and/or any other dissolvent. After cleaning you can rub the top side of the tablecloth with a thin layer of talcum powder to make it less static.



About the Designer:
The design duo deJongeKalff consists of Jennifer de Jonge (Axel NL, 1981) and Roos Kalff (Amsterdam NL, 1967). After a study Interior Design in Antwerp in 2004, and Architectural Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, De Jonge proceeded with Applied Arts, graduating in 2011. Kalff finished education as Arts teacher in 1992. After a career in the film industry, and building a dwelling in the South of Spain, she graduated in Architectural Design at the Rietveld in 2009, the same year as De Jonge. Ever since they share an interest in finding new opportunities for existing materials. While they continue to work as independent artists, they merged their activities in 2011 under the name deJongeKalff.

DeJongeKalff makes products like Tafelvlekken, Paper Light and Castle glasses that are designed with the material as a starting point, looking for alienation between material and form, while combining old forms with new techniques. Their White rubber table cloth caught the eye of Rijksmuseum which led to a commission for the Dürer table cloth. With Studio Droog these reinterpretations of century old works were presented as a functional dining room at the Salone del Mobile 2013.

In 2011 the White rubber table cloth was awarded the Mercure culture prize. Previous De Jonge’s work was on show at the DOEN|materiaalprijs and travelled as far as China and Australia. Kalff’s Chameleon chair won first prize at the Re-Frame design contest and was on show in Norway and Germany.
