Description

EXCLUSIVE EDITION 1/1
One-off production prototype – made by Berre Brans – numbered and signed.

Chairs are an integral part of our contemporary Western culture. Yet our body is anatomically not particularly suited to sit on a chair. Originating from the throne, the chair as we know it is the remnant of a symbol of power. Functioning to elevate oneself over another. The concept of the chair spread itself around the world, eventually turning this “non functional object” into a design archetype.

Strongly inspired by the cultural influence of the chair, designer Berre Brans deconstructed the chair both conceptually and functionally. The high “TABOURET” can be split into two lower ones: a forty-two centimeter stool (Western sitting height and throne height) and a twenty centimeter stool (natural human squatting position). These different hierarchical positions change the perception of the user towards his surroundings and the seat itself, hereby questioning the role of the chair within the Western society.

Within the surface of the “TABOURET”, the monumental and archaic meets the graceful and refined.

This artefact was created within the context of “POST ORIENTALISM – A Kid’s Instinct”, a personal project of Brans. In his research, he looks for new ways of designing and encouraging cultural exchange in a post-colonial society. He does this by inviting different people within his design process and building a constantly growing Atlas of theoretical, personal and visual references.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
