C. R. Siebrasse

Together with the painter Rainer Schenk, Christoph R. Siebrasse has developed spectacular furniture objects since the 1970s. In the context of the “New German Design Movement” constructions of square steel with marble, steel sheets and ropes as well as felt were created. Designs such as the “Freethinker”, the telescoping “Russian Chair” or the “Pentagon Dodecahedron” are always at the limit of sculpture and design. With the chair “Sensilla” from 1988, Siebrasse succeeded in creating the first real cantilever chair, whose seat, suspended on four ropes, allows moving, healthy and meditative sitting. In addition, the artists always experimented with other materials and techniques, creating diverse, sometimes colorful wood furniture that draw a line between De Stijl and Pop Art. Some models are now manufactured in high quality in small series and are available through the Art Aurea showroom.
