Following the most important themes that regularly occur in the artist's work, Elements explains the developing process and the track leading from inspiration towards the final realisation of a project. Essence contains breathtaking pictures of Wolterinck's most recent projects around the world. Both books combined illustrate Wolterinck's timeless yet innovating view on lifestyle and design.
"Wolterinck is the amalgam of old and new, hard and soft, light and dark, round and edgy. He's also a man of keep it simple , symmetry and clarity. Wolterinck is a child of modern times, but one that never disregards or denies the original. Work and mankind are a two-unity and can never been seen separately. This publication shows us Wolterinck as a man and as a designer, and draws the attention to his inspiration, motives and applications." Alexander Haje
