All for one and one for all! Fit for a king!

Electrical tape is an everyday object that is available in a wide variety of colours and sizes. But vinyl-based adhesive tapes are not just used by electricians or installers for insulating, bundling and marking cables and wires. With a touch of imagination, it becomes a wonderfully flexible material for artists to work with.

HellermannTyton in the Netherlands approached the Klebebande (TapeTeam) from Berlin, Germany, to produce a unique piece of Tape Art on April 27, 2016 – the “King’s Day” (Koningsdag https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koningsdag) national holiday, where the Dutch celebrate the birth of King Willem-Alexander.

Using our range of HelaTape tapes, the Klebebande made a colourful contribution to the traditional show of “orange madness” (oranjegekte) with a stunning crown motif in reference to the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange-Nassau.

The Klebebande from Berlin is an established team of artists. Bruno, Bodo and Nikolaj create unique tableaus from different types of adhesive tape, or “tape art”.  They have also developed what they call “tape mapping” – a mix of video mapping and tape art. Both forms attract a lot of attention and can be found in lobbies and open spaces across Germany and Europe – now also in the Netherlands! http://www.klebebande-berlin.com/
