The ‘spineless’ chair forms part of the Koeln chair collection and is cast in flexible silicon rubber and hung, as if on a butcher’s hook – limp and lifeless and unable to oblige the sitter – questioning the very function of the chair and our relationship with it.
In the Koeln chair collection, the classic HorgenGlarus chair, a purely functional piece of furniture, is being turned it in to a work with emotional resonance. Through constant reinterpretation, the chair has become an ideal blank canvas for ongoing experimentation’s with its form and materials (such as silicone, slate, rubber, resin), each taking on a new personality.
