Description

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.

The Whole Elements
Launched by Anna Bera in 2014, The Whole Elements is a design studio and a wood workshop based in Warsaw, Poland. Dedicated to creating furniture pieces, crafted by hand from wood, the brand is notable for its bridging of art and design, with inspiration coming from Bera's observations of the relationship between humans and nature — from a biological, spiritual and cultural perspective. As an artist, woodcarver and carpenter, Anna creates mainly functional sculptures crafted by hand in limited edition runs, as well as one-of-a-kind pieces. Her designs refer to forms drawn from the world of nature. The artist focuses on the ways the objects are used, as well as on their ritualistic significance in everyday life. She creates sculptural furniture, the form of which does not reveal the functionality, instead encouraging the users to explore and give them their own meaning.
