Susi and Ueli Berger, “5 Minuten Stuhl,” 1970,
Wire Mesh, Galvanized
A summer evening in 1970 at Bergers in the garden in Ersigen: there are not enough chairs! So, flux - in 5 minutes - creates an unconventional seating area out of a 318 cm long piece of wire mesh.
The grid is assembled into a double cylinder, the ends fixed with wire and pressed to 42 cm, the seat height on one side.
