SITZFLÄCHE enjoys the status of being an institution in the 15th district. Since 2009, it has been a showroom for design chairs and at the same time a platform for social integration – and makes seating options into places of encounter, even in the public space. At this interface of private and communal, old and new, and also fired by her interest in design chairs, the artist and businesswoman Sabine Heine has now developed a series of one-offs: 1+1=1 are new designs consisting of two used chairs or stools which with appropriate joins become a bench. The Czech performer Jan Jakubal demonstrates by means of the design objects that sitting does not automatically mean inertia, but can also be top-speed locomotion. Because here, sitting means dynamics!
