Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner enriched the original Tolix chair with craftsmanship. He used leather cords. The woven structure makes the work something particularly modern and even monumental. In the twentieth century, it is often thought to be the link between the various fine arts. Think about Antonio Gaudi’s buildings.

Lex Pott

Lex Pott relied on his typical, rough and intuitive approach to the new interpretation of the Tolix chair. As usual, he gave the piece a unique character through the specific editing of the surface. His work, which refers to the Tolix chair, shows weathered surface in combination with rusted stainless steel. Copper and brass were also used to enhance this effect even more. A certain visual highlight is achieved by the stainless steel.
