Last year, he appeared at Structure in Milan in collaboration with Falke Svatun with the floor lamp ‘Aerial’ – one of the show’s highlights. This year, van den Berg presents the solo work Sheet Cabinet, a wall-mounted piece in galvanised aluminium with movable doors that plays on the distinction between shelving and cabinet, and which raises questions of contact by using conventional outdoor materials and finishes on an indoor product.
