Design Kaput

Design Kaput

In Design Kaput I showed chairs that were not designed by me, but by Ola Wihlborg for IKEA. I had those chairs painted by hand with the lyrics of songs that had something to do with the bottom, an essential part of the human body when it comes to using a chair. As well as the chairs, I had a table decorated that had been designed by Jean Prouvé for Vitra. The only thing I designed was the type, which is distinguished by the fact that each letter takes up the same space, a square that only slightly reduces its legibility but greatly increases the decorative effect.
On a large surface it resembles a fabric with a regular pattern, like the wallpaper that covered all the walls and ceilings of the exhibition space.
