The ‘Shape’ collection is a series of objects created over the course of two years. They have no common theme or inspiration. An element loosely connecting this set of furniture is a characteristic process of creation, radically different from the way Anna Bera has worked so far. The Whole Elements studio’s previous collections, such as ‘Fossil’ or ‘ESW’, were inspired by objects from nature and preceded by an in-depth analysis of such forms as stones, mushrooms and fossils. This time, each of the objects has a completely different genesis. They share the abstract name ‘Shape’ which does not mean anything.
The ‘Shape N.2’ chair was designed, so to say, at leisure. The artist, frustrated and disappointed with failures in her work on another object, began to play freely with the form in 3D software. That was how, in just a few moments, the design of the chair from the ‘Shape’ collection was created. Obviously, after the moment of enlightenment, the project required remodelling and resolution of many technical problems; however, the object became a product of pure expression, having no initial assumptions nor resulting from any specific reflection or inspiration. Its general form is an outcome of frustration and sheer joy at breaking free from limitation.
Despite its unusual proportions, „Shape N.2’ is a full-size usable chair. The object has been hand-crafted from glued alder wood.
