Pansa Gallery


Frank Officier


Frank seeks beauty and value. Looks for imperfect perfection. And is searching for the subtle.

After graduating from the Rietveld he started working as a video artist, later on, his interest shifted to design and crafts. Art and design overlap in his work, and he sees each object he creates as part of a continuing process of learning. He makes objects that soothe, objects that resonate, are still and evoke a certain calm.

Objects that remind you. It’s about the things that we feel but don’t express, left as a mere memory of an unfulfilled deeper emotion. Separate from trends and volatility, but intended to be cherished and left behind.Sometimes unintentionally functional, often not.

Most of the objects he makes are unique, unique in the sense that no two are the same, one-offs. This can be due to an algorithm that he uses in the design, or due to the execution that is often traditional.

“I fold, bend, saw or form, click and tear,

And let me be distracted looking for that one thing I can’t name.”
