THOMAS FEICHTNER: DESIGN SPHERE

Dorotheum

28.9.–6.10.2018

In an installation, the auction house Dorotheum will present the Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner’s masterpiece “Sphere:” a bank of computer-generated splines for which exclusively the finest stainless steel wires were welded into a complex structure. Digital production methods and the most modern welding technique available, from H+S Zauntechnik, made realization of this spheric plane possible. Based on a hexagonal basic structure, the asymmetric bank stands on three different-sized legs, while the weight is distributed equally on the wires. A game of foreground and background. A guided tour will be given by Thomas Feichtner.

Guided tour: Sat 6.10., 8pm
(Admission fee charged as part of the Long Night of Museums)
