"Thought through to its conclusion, functionality does not end in an unequivocal standard, but instead ends in a multiplicity of possibilities, and that means in the complexity of a richer form." These are the concluding observations of Heinrich Klotz, founder of the German Museum of architecture in Frankfurt, about Stefan Wewerka’s work.
As an artist, Stefan Wewerka (born in 1928) literally deforms chairs, tables and cabinets in a sophisticated playful way.
The B1 asymmetric chair stands solidly on three legs, one part of the back acts as an armrest and changing the seated position can actually be suggested by the shape pattern and material. This is no longer about sitting in rows; instead, it enables a range of conversations and activities.
TECTA is a furniture manufacturing company based in Lauenförde, Germany. It was founded in 1956 by the architect Hans Könecke. The company name comes from Latin, and means "to design" or "to execute". In 1972 Werner and Axel Bruchhäuser took over the company, and Bruchhäuser remains in charge to this day, jointly since 2001 with his nephew Christian Drescher.
The product line of Tecta consists of Bauhaus re-editions, such as the iconic cantilever chair, and derivative designs. Numerous items of furniture created by avant-garde designers of the 1920s have been mass-produced for the first time by Tecta. Tecta’s faithful and licensed re-editions of Bauhaus models are approved by the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and bear as an imprint the Bauhaus symbol designed by Oskar Schlemmer in 1922 at the original Bauhaus school in Weimar.
Tecta also works with a variety of contemporary architects and artists to create modern furniture based on Bauhaus principles.
Tecta continues to work in the commitment to the Modern Movement - a movement which, as architect Peter Smithson put it, "…is not legacy in the sense of a sum of money to be spent or speculated with…it is a genetic stance, a responsibility…something to live up to."
