Designer artist Sven Temper will be showing his ‘ST1112’ chair at the upcoming Hans-Peter Jochum gallery exhibition “Sven Temper Raumbilder” (“Spatial Pictures”), a unique take on ordinary household furniture.
Berlin-based Temper is known for minimalist works that blend cultural patterns and functionality rendered in everyday wood and mass produced materials. His unique design language has evolved with time, his early work referenced artists such as Donald Judd and Richard Artschwager, incorporating a strong sculptural quality. The ST1112 consists of painted plywood, oak, and painted steel.
For the exhibition, Temper will be showing new furniture, objects, architectural models and drawings. “The title of the exhibition refers to both the material as well as the social connotations of space, its physical and social impact and how social spaces are constructed through communication and/or action. Individual actions are closely related to spatial structures and coincidentally, spaces are compounded by, and structured through, actions.” says the gallery.
Sven Temper Raumbilder opens May 8 to July 6, 2013 at the Hans-Peter Jochum gallery in Berlin.
