THE GOOD THE BAD THE UGLY / SOLO EXHIBITION / DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG /
2015
The exhibition THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY was devised in three parts: the first one showed the (almost) entire genesis of “Chair_ONE” (1999–2004) consisting of twenty-five 1:1 scale mock-ups and prototypes. The models, which were made of wire, cardboard, sheet steel or 3D printed nylon, were exhibited in specially designed sulfur yellow display cages. Alongside the models, we showed examples of the final production chair (manufactured by Magis Italy).
The second part of the exhibi¬tion presented a cross section of industrial design projects from over two decades of my career. The selected projects represented a personal list of favourites.
The third and final section was conceived as a scenographic installation for the TT-Pavilion, a project we had designed for the launch of the Audi TT model in 2014. The small building combines a wooden structure with seven original hatchback doors and fuel caps from the TT model. The pavilion was positioned in front of a utopian land¬scape that was painted on canvas exclusively for the exhibition.
The exhibition title is borrowed from a classic Western and pointing ironically to the highly emotional potential of design and its reception.
