Tour & Talk with Thomas Schnur
Monday 20 March
Craft and industry, wood and metal, round and square, theory and practice. As a trained carpenter and studied designer, Thomas Schnur works as a designer and university lecturer to unite and manifest contradictions in the form of objects for everyday use.
In the first part of the exhibition, initial sketches, photos and models are juxtaposed with the final designs. Among them are numerous already established pieces of furniture, such as K5 and K7 for Tecta, but also prototypes, such as the Arfinio Chair, made of a new, recyclable plastic, which was created in collaboration with the material manufacturer Covestro. In part two, the series is supplemented by a reading room and the publication Chairman, which is on display there. Here, table designs by the Cologne designer enter into dialogue with his selection of pioneering seating furniture by various designers and manufacturers. These chair-table compositions invite visitors to read the books, test the furniture and exchange ideas with each other.
