during the fall edition of maison et objet 2012, french publication intramuros presented ‘café intramuros’ where a selection of furniture edited by german company richard lampert accompanied an installation of masks which dutch designer bertjan pot produced. beginning as a material experiment, pot’s original intentions were to create a flat carpet by stitching rope together. however, because of the nature of the material and the technique in which he was working with, the results were quite curvy. as he was about to give up on the carpet concept, a friend suggested that perhaps he try to intentionally curve the forms to make masks.  the result are pieces of art which portray exaggerated facial features, the vibrantly colored works exuding a narrative nature.

bertjan pot + richard lampert presented by intramuros ‘mash’ folding chair by alexand seifried for richard lampert W55 x H85 x D59cm

 

 

the ‘mash’ folding chair by german designer alexander seifried for richard lampert furnished ‘café intramuros’, offering an interpretation of the duality of usage between indoor and outdoor, domestic and contract, folding or mobile objects.  the formal qualities of ‘mash’ pay homage toa folding chair which had originally been produced around the 1960s,  although the designer and exact year of creation remain unknown. it takes its name from the american military feel it displays. available in a range of neutral toned weatherproof polyester mesh with coloured trim, together with solid oak armrests and outdoor powder-coated steel frame, the seating object represents a modern interpretation of the first-generation ‘camping’ chairs.
