What can I say? These ironic, pretty macabre but beautifully worked chesterfield sculptures don’t need many explanations.
After they both graduated from design school (HfG) in Karlsruhe in 2005 Yvonne Fehling and Jennie Peiz opened their studio Fehling & Peiz and established themselves as one of Germany’s most perceived conceptual designers.
But let’s see how the designers describe ‘Stillives’:
“Objects for domestic space.
Fitment, toy, luxury good, sculpture.
Stuffed toy, gym equipment.
They deliberately defy all definition.
There is both something confounding and liberating about it.
In any case, they are a welcome change in an unexpected direction.”
