Item description for Yvonne Fehling & Jennie Peiz: Stuhlhockerbank by Klaus Gallwitz Volker Albus...
For Germany's recently completed and internationally celebrated Arp Museum extension, designed by the Pritzker-Prize-winning New York architect Richard Meier, Yvonne Fehling and Jennie Peiz created 12 playful, user-friendly and exquisitely crafted wooden benches. These are placed throughout the new three-level museum building--which sits alongside the Rhine River atop a steep, forested hill and affords spectacular views of the landscape--wherever a visitor might want to stop and rest, look, think--or converse, as the benches mutate to create clever social areas that are as inviting as they are pristine. Part sculptural works, part high-design objects, these warm and functional forms are composed of seamlessly interconnecting stools, chairs and benches that blend historical and contemporary aesthetics with an unusually light-hearted touch.
