we are familiar with the phrase ‘form follows function’, robert stadler however contradicts this notion with his new series ‘you name it’. the designer believes that form does not necessarily need to follow any rules, instead he aims for the real and the fake to to blend into each other. thing #1 and thing #2 express this intention by showing no functional properties, thing #1 for example shows an abstract wave design, in keeping with the shelf, serving only to act as a decorative piece. thing #2 has a black and white camouflaged pattern which unlike thing #1 contrasts against the shelf. its skin has been applied via hydrographic printing, a dipping process through which decorative films can be mapped onto 3-dimensional objects. these objects can be used to slide along an accompanying shelf which is made from sand-blasted oak. the shapes allow the viewer to define what they see, by naming the piece of furniture with a unique name.
