The Chair of the Architect
2019

From THONET 200 Project
A  Rug (blue, New Zealand sheep wool), 200 × 200 cm
or 200 × 300 cm (78½ x 78½ or 78½ x 118 in.), with Thonet Chair 209 in natural wood. Edition of 5, signed and numbered.

B  Rug (gray, New Zealand sheep wool), 200 × 200 cm or 200 x 300 cm (78½ x 78½ or 78½ x 118 in.), with Thonet Chair 209 painted gray. Edition of 5, signed and numbered.


Merz celebrates rational beauty in art and design with the T-square emblem and refers to the aesthetic settings of Le Corbusier, who included chair 209 as his own in his art and architecture.

"Art provides the chance to think about what life should be and not about what life actually is."

Gerhard Merz - Venedig 1997
Gerhard Merz

Venedig 1997
1998

From the portfolio Sequences
a, b: Two silkscreens, c: Grano lithograph,
all printed on Magnani rag paper.
Each print 50 x 40 cm (19¾ x 15¾"),
each signed and numbered. Edition of 60.


Gerhard Merz, born 1947 in Mammendorf near Munich, lives and works in Berlin and Pescia, Italy. Gerhard Merz, who has occasionally been labeled a modern classicist, uses the elements of art - measurement, form and light - in a careful reconsideration of modernism. These three prints document the idea, the architectural plan, and the realized art space at the German Pavillion of the Venice Biennale 1997: brick walls, plaster and fluorescent light - clarity and blankness. »The beautiful is mute and blank.«


Set EUR 1.200
