Seam Chair by Chris Kabel
VIVID Gallery presents: Show 01-07 Chris Kabel September 30 – 18 November 18, 2007 Kabel describes his designs as usable poetics. They are the result of a rather clinical dissection of objects and their context which enables him to analyze separately function from decoration and shape from material. He then puts these parts back tohether again in his own way, not unlike a modern doctor Frankenstein. Now based in Rotterdam, he has studied at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, where he was noticed by Droog Design. His graduation project the Sticky Lamp was included in their catalogue in 2002, the beginning of an ongoing collaboration including commissions and exhibitions. Mooi and Royal VKB have followed, and some of his products have entered the collections of the Boijmans van Beuningen, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the FNAC (french foundation for contemporary art).
