The titles of his works are as bloomy as they are colourful in appearance: ‘Stolz und Schabernack’ (‘pride and hoax’) or ‘Der frühe Morgen ist Verheißung’ (‘the early evening is a promise’). The German designer Stefan Wieland creates loud and expressive lamps and furniture made from roughly worked – welded, painted and bent materials such as acryl glass, veneer or laminate. In his likewise crude but beautiful explanations you will read comments like “To provoke errors and then cultivate them”, “Sunshine, o sunshine, how you are shining in my cup of peppermint tea” and “to split a painting into fragments and restructure”.
But don’t miss to read all of it:
Some hair-styles look similar to architecture models / To sew acrylic staffs / One of a kind / Thus can a draft for a community center first be noticed as auxiliary organ on an existing house wall and then as wall lamp / Veneer twisted / Fascinatores / To provoke errors and then cultivate them / To marble acrylic glass / Lightobjectsculpture / Laboratory of sensuality / Lashed acrylic glass / Prototypes / Mr. Tiger makes from fear fear / Cold welding with neoncoloured epoxy resin / Bold one shapes / To harden winds of victory will form the character / Lacquer on water on acrylic glass / Pieces of gloss / To touch stone-furnace-bread, then translate felt warmth in light temperature quasi no expression / To isolate brushlinesignatures / Jewels / Who is hunting the three has to take care of meeting the four / To laminate lacquer types of dust, there a little more / Gems / Extended collecting mains for embarrassingly simple transilluminations / To draw a clear line with felt-tip pen / Senators / Whitened display windows must be added in parts to attractive cubes / To heal anything broken / Pulsar / If I wake up and you are not beside me, I will have badly slept / To mill windings and fill them up / Solitaire / Everything must be judged visually by the water side and the land side / Applications laminated and strechted to panoramas / Synthesis from painting and sculpture / Sunshine, o sunshine, how you are shining in my cup of peppermint tea / Natural luminescent / Sympathy carriers / Bodies of full rage and fragility / To bring in form and bend around the corner / Upright one / If behaviour would be still attitude, then like a corral reef / To split a painting into fragments and restructure it / Main celestial body / Today fun, morning-red / To collage motives and then infiltrate them / Silver backs / To produce the background automatically over the foreground, better: motive equal to carrier / To generate plug systems / Monolith / Light begins, where my short shade ends / To take flat acrylic glass surfaces secretly their two-dimensionality / Landmarks / To mark strictly forbidden sounds / To form acrylic glass into little hats / Figure of light / To disappear into the twilight and being outrageously romantic
