Design is fine. History is mine.

Imagine a time with no computers.

Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Salon chair, 1828-30. Berlin. Mahogany. Presented at Gallery Ulrich Fiedler, Berlin 17.9 - 22.10.2013

If you compare you will see that design and product are perfectly one. This chair has previously been unknown and was part of a series, most likely for a Palais’ furnishing. One of Schinkel’s most mature and elaborate of his preserved chairs. 

Take a look during berlin art week, 17 - 21/09
