Unfurled by Patricia Piccinini

And then you find yourself in the Anker Brotfabrik in Vienna where part of the premises are rented by Ernst Hilger, partly as a dependance for his Galery in the Dorotheer Gasse number 5, right in the center of Vienna and partly to show his own collection of Modern Art. Kindly we were shown around by his assistant Michaela Pedratscher who showed us this chair….And then you remember the name Patricia Piccinini….partly because you have seen earlier work of her…. and partly because you have taken earlier photo’s of her work…

Update: My first encounter with Patricia Piccinini was 10 years ago when she showed work in the now sadly discontinued The Hague Sculpture (Open Air Sculpture Exhibition):

MCesChair by Helmut Palla

All of a sudden this chair came along on Helmut Palla‘s FaceBook timeline where he put it somewhere in 2013. Part Escher (its name is MCesChair, after M.C. Escher), but also part Rietveld this time and maybe Helmut didn’t think of Rietveld’s Steltman Chair. And a bit of Steffen Kehrle as well.

Stretch Lounge by Michelle Dunbar

This industrially knit fabric was created to respond to human interaction and physically change when sat upon. The tubes expand and reveal a hidden color as the chair flexes to support weight. This dual seater was created in collaboration with Mayela Mujica MFA Furniture 2016. This chair will be exhibited at both the XXI Triennale International Exhibition Milan 2016 as a part of the Milan Furniture Fair and ICFF in New York.
