The Mountain and Valley Chair was designed for Costumes & Wishes for the 21st Century (2016), a group exhibition at Schinkel Pavillion, Berlin. The exhibition was a collaboration between BLESS, visual artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Studio Manuel Raeder. Composing visional narratives from film, literature and science, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s apparitions are reimaginations of the characters of Edgar Allan Poe, Lola Montez, and Fitzcarraldo. The Mountain and Valley Chairs were designed by Manuel Raeder to support these costumes and extend the displaced and sensational worlds of these apparitions.
The Mountain and Valley Chairs are made up of two variations: the convex “mountain” and concave “valley” that support the body in different ways. Three colour variations are available: blue, black and orange. The exhibition also featured a limited edition chair designed by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, whereby casts of the artist’s arms and legs were affixed to the chair’s frame.
