The unique object "dead sidechair wood" is a pedantic transformed reproduction of the chair DSW (dining sidechair wood) created by Ray and Charles Eames.
The materials glasfibre, metal and wood seem to dissolve slowly to the ground. A surreal object which seems enchanted due to its perfect execution.
The seatshell has the same colour and fibre-glass structure as its origin due to the production method using high pressure vacuum. For the shape of the shell a mold was created, based on a silicone casting produced using the original seat shell. Even the shockmounts (dampers between the chair frame and the seat shell) are slightly transformed and reproduced. The curved chair leg shows craftsmanship at the highest level. It was steam-bent at an almost right angle and then carefully hand-carved to create the effect of a rubber-like material.
The object is part of the "inspired by eames" collection, a hands-on project using works of Ray and Charles Eames and their role in design culture as source of inspiration.
The appropriation process started in the nucleus of production – the technique. All objects are handcrafted with developing and improvising industrial production methods in an pedantic autodidactive way.

I am specialized in creating unique handcrafted objects while using the appearance of industrial made products.
My objects include a campfire effect. They attract attention, bring light and warmth into space and work as an eternal eye-catcher just like watching a fire burning.
I have an arts and design background, holding a diploma degree in productdesign (Germany) where i enjoyed a scholarship at IKEA Design Center in Sweden and a postgraduated degree in arts and urban spaces. Since 1o years I learn, develope and experiment different techniques of transforming materials in an autodidactic way. I am always excited about experiencing new techniques and styles. My studio is situated in an old factory in the heart of Vienna, Austria. I love the contrast between the warmth of my works and the coolness of this enviroment.
