WHITE BILLION CHAIRS (2002/2009)

“I made a prototype in 2002, which was effectively the very first piece I had ever designed. Throughout the subsequent years, I continued with the project, collecting old and rare monobloc chairs on my travels. In 2009, I chose a typological selection that became WHITE BILLION CHAIRS.

Being the most sold chair world wide – what’s the monobloc chair worth? Can you add substance to an industrial product by taking away material, bit by bit, hole by hole, eventually rendering its structure too fragile to support its traditional usage? Will we perceive the monobloc, once we can see through it? Will we start noticing the monobloc, once it has disappeared? Are we close enough yet, to look behind that perforated screen?“

Sculptural object. Conceptual sculpture. Not a chair, too fragile to sit on.

Tina Roeder
Born in Germany, Roeder graduated from Central Saint Martins in London and went on to earn an MA from the Design Academy Eindhoven under Droog in 2004. After training with Studio Job in Antwerp, she launched her own studio in 2007. She lives and works in Berlin.   Roeder’s practice exists at the intersection of furniture design, architecture, and conceptual sculpture. Her postcritical approach engages design history—especially the legacies of Modernism, Gerrit Rietveld, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marcel Duchamp, and Donald Judd. Her work can be found in the Vitra Design Museum permanent collection and Fendi private collection.
