Tina Roeder

Designer and friend Tina Roeder had her first solo exhibition at the Appel Design Gallery in Berlin. At "White billion Chairs 33", you could see a collections of old and rare monoblock chairs. Each chair was individually perforated (up to thousands holes each) and sanded in order to give them a new life and appreciation. The Monoblock’s beauty lies in its democratic concept -it’s the most sold chair worldwide, everyone can own it. The project is an attempt to reveal the beauty of that idea and to make visible what lies beneath the surface. A mass product made into a limited edition raises the question of its material and immaterial/societal/cultural/aesthetical/ethical values. Very nice work Tina!!
