Paul Kingma (1931-2013) had a big admiration for earth history and life in general, being the inspiration for his table creations. He considered elements of the past magical and beautiful, the main reason he uses these materials in his work. With modesty, Paul Kingma established a dialogue between these elements of the past and everyday objects.
Kingma collected, bought, tried and traveled around the world to find these beautiful products of the time in distant lands and strange places. With his tables Kingma tried to focus on the beauty of life and the world. The activity he chose gave him a great joy in work. Their heavy weight is the testimony of their durability. For Paul Kingma, eternity, ease of use, invulnerability and joy at work, have remained determinants since the beginning.
