Where form meets function

Austrian designer Robert Stadler presents “Shading,” a series of new work at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London for the London Design Festival. From the artist:

The Royèroid series reflects reverence to Jean Royère’s classic furniture design “Ours Polaire”. In his “Ours Polaire” series Royère sought to unify the various elements of a seat in order to form an abstract whole. This method has produced furniture with a sculptural quality. In creating the Royèroid series, Stadler continues on Royere’s ‘quest for abstraction’ up to a point in which the object turns monolithical, appearing as if it was a three-dimensional computer mesh, whilst maintaining an entirely handmade creation.

Shading is on show at 3 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4HE until 12 November.
