Together with our parteners Optiplan and Hartmann Projects we invited our guests to take a seat on these historic originals. Originals which have served not only the well known of Stuttgart’s art scene, but also architects, politicians and experts in art history of the Württembergische Kunstverein.
3107 chairs from the Series 7, designed by Arne Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen in the 1950s.
Max Bill, Walter Gropius, Lothar Späth, Heinrich Lübke, Dennis Hopper… and maybe even you yourself have been sitting on these chairs between 1961 and 2013 at the WKV and experienced openings, listened to lectures, discussions and taken part in celebrations.
Afterwards, all chairs could be purchased by our guests. Worn seat buffers were replaced by 3-D printed ones. Live by Optiplan. Markus Hartmann from hartmannprojects in discussion with Dr. Tilmann Osterwold, director of the WKV. Dieter Wimmer from Optiplan explains the 3-D printing procedure, with the seat buffer as an example.
Thanks to Stuttgarter Hofbräu for their support!
