In the exhibition “The Chairman” at the designforum Steiermark, the designer and architect Martin Mostböck shows how he approaches the challenge of an armchair design, which is considered the supreme discipline in design.
Mostböck designs furniture, houses, interiors, everyday objects and is a border crosser between disciplines. Taking place at designforum Steiermark, Mostböck presents designs that were created in the last two decades at the exhibition.
On display are armchairs and furniture that stand in the field of tension between art and serial product. In this way, it is possible to trace the wide world between experiment, craft, industry and sustainable design. Mostböck’s exhibition explores how connections between different areas are entangled and flow into the design process.
