The ubiquitous white plastic monobloc chair is at it again – or rather, Bert Loeschner is. The artist and designer uses the infamous garden chair as a canvas for his projects.
He explains, “The contrast between the design and the popularity of this chair leads to questions about the value of innovation, aesthetics and functionality in our way of consuming. The function of a chair is way more than sitting. It also exists to represent, present, communicate, protect, assist, to confine and so on…”
In the end, his work serves to inject a little humour – an emotional touch – into the humble and most ordinary.
