For one of his customers Harry visited New York, where he became fascinated by the Chrysler Building. Inspired by this Manhattan skyscraper, Harry decided to use that same tension in a series of patinated brass lamps that he designed and developed for his customer.
“Out of necessity, I decided to design the lamp myself and I had a brazier make four models by hand.”
“At a young age, Harry discovered that he had a talent to transform spaces, thanks to his fascination with art, history and philosophy. He gathered a collection of art, which he incorporated into his projects. This collection eventually led to his own gallery in The Hague, where he currently presents a number of young artists in addition to his own collection. Harry’s worldly vision has always been a part of his signature.”
