ROCKING OBJECT MADE OF COMPRESSED WOOD

Tina Lehner

30.9.–9.10.2016

To quote the rock’n’roll classic by Chubby Checker: “Let’s twist again, like we did last [autumn]!” How you can bend, shape, and so create potential-hit design compositions out of highly flexible compressed wood with sheer physical strength was shown by Tina Lehner in her open work studio on Gumpendorfer
Straße. The designer has been testing possibilities and limits of the material here for several years, and among the things delighting visitors were several prototypes and above all the artistically ingenious and airy small-furniture series
of the ROCKING OBJECT.
