Neue Wiener Werkstätte, Thomas Feichtner
Fr 30.09.–Sa 8.10.2011
Cocktail 01.10.2011 10am
As part of an installation, the NEUE WIENER WERKSTÄTTE will be showing the ‘M3 Chair’ by the Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner. This one-of-a-kind piece represents a contrast to the serially produced ‘FX10 Lounge Chair’, an earlier design by Feichtner, which has already become an Austrian design classic. Freed of the requirements of a series product, this design not only experiments with static and function, but also relies on the craftsmanship of the traditional company NEUE WIENER WERKSTÄTTE & KAPO. The measurements of the ‘M3’ are exactly equal to one cubic metre, hence the name ‘M3 (m3) Chair’, which represents a type of conscious appropriation of its own space.
Design brunch on Saturday, 1 October: the NEUE WIENER WERKSTÄTTE and Thomas Feichtner invite you to a discussion of design and craftsmanship over breakfast.
