osko+deichmann – Funktionale Beschädigung
27 March–22 May 2010
HELMRINDERKNECHT presents Berlin design-duo osko+deichmann's family of tubular steel furniture with kinks. The tubing used in the furniture is not bent – as is normally the case – but rather functionally folded, dented and kinked. The chairs, tables and other furniture derive their final form and function by means of this intentional process of “damaging” the tubular steel: the process' traces, which would normally be regarded as defects, are in fact integral to the furniture's design.
