Chairbag is the hybrid result of a crossover between a chair and a beanbag. A sketlleton with loose skin. Shape can be defined to drape its skin over the frame. The leather that has been used are rejected skins from the industry. These ones were too pale...
Brick Series Brick Chair is a reaction on a drawing made by James Gulliver Hancock. Pepe’s interpretation changed the chair into (second hand) children’s bricks. He wanted to stretch the possibilities of the material to its limits: the Brick Chandelier evolved. With a diameter of 2.70 meter this chandelier amazes by the combination of being both playful and technical at the same time.
Paper Vase Cover The Paper Vase is a skin to cover any empty bottle and to turn it into a vase. Adjustable in size by rolling up the paper the vase cover will fit any bottle. The triangular structure allows the paper to set around its bottle. The paper vase comes flatpacked in an envelope.
Liquid Pillows In search of capturing a moment; a still. A rigid steel frame is dripped with liquid foam. This creates fluid pillows. A rubber skin merges both soft and hard layers.
The Matka Vase is a traditional Indian water carrier covered in a random pattern of scrap leather. The container has been given a new skin and turned into a vase. In a reaction to the huge amount of waste of high quality leather created by the furniture industry (up to 30%), Pepe designed the Skin Collection in 2011. Now, in 2012, the Matka Vase is born. The scraps generate a unique and random pattern as every piece has a different shape, giving the Matka a new life by turning waste into a vase. Using distinctive techniques from his Skin Collection, Matka Vase is produced in his workshop located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Mumbai, India –
Bits of Wood is a series of tables and stools made from wooden cut-offs. Various pieces are modified to fit into a mold where molten tin holds them together. No screw, nor glue is used in this construction.The wooden pieces used in this series are leftovers from a local sawmill. The tin comes from a metal recycling department where old tin pots and plates are collected. The surface reveals its production method.
The Tapepot evolved from an earlier project named 'Conversations'. 
In second hand shops the items are often organized in groups. These teapots were standing close together. With a roll of tape Pepe merged them into one, this became the shape for making the mold.
Cracks is a series of ‘broken’ crockery. It is based upon the natural behaviour of shrinking of porcelain during the firingprocess. It shows an increasing pattern of cracks along the series. In collaboration with Bauke Knottnerus. The starting point of this crockery is to build up the whole series starting with a huge plate and a big bowl. After firing the plate and the bowl will shrink about 15%. The shrinking basicly creates the series: from big bowl to cup and from plate to saucer. In the end of the series cup and saucer meet again. The layers of cracks are applied to show the decay of products. The future of a cup will eventually end up in cullet.
The Skin Collection is a reaction to the 25-30 percent waste produced by the furniture industry. The furniture is found on the street or secondhand and modified and then covered in pieces of leather leftovers. What creates this amount of waste are things like the organic shape of the animal, its scratches, damages, scars and unmatching colors after dying. This project is fed by the nature of this leather scrap, turning it into random patterns, referring to cell structures and growth in nature. The cover grows slowly around the object where colors blend together. The entire process is done by hand. It merges discarded objects with a skin made out of waste and gives it a new life.
Restless Chairacter This chair looks stiff and sturdy, but it adapts itself to the user. Special handmade rubber joints provide this flexibility. Starting point was an old wooden wobbly chair of which the joints got loose over time. By redesigning the joints it is now flexible in all directions. Even after putting a book under one of the legs the chair will adapt and all legs will touch the floor. Special handmade rubber joints provide this flexibility. Starting point was an old wooden wobbly chair of which the joints got loose over time. It was about to collapse... By redesigning the joints the Restless Chairacter is now flexible in all directions. The chair has rigid looks but technical solutions within the joints result in a surprising outcome. A chair for those who can't sit still.
