Art in Residence is an informal installation of wooden objects and sculptures placed with ILMA, a new lounge chair by Jonas Lutz among other furniture by e15.
During Berlin Art Week, e15 and ANDREAS MURKUDIS introduced the work of Finnish artist and industrial designer Jonas Lutz. The pieces were created during the past two years in his studio in Rotterdam, using locally sourced Dutch Pine and Elm wood.
Finnish-born designer, Jonas Lutz creates objects of bold simplicity and elegant solutions, often with a tacit playfulness. His objects instantly reveal a continuous search for the novel and the undiscovered. Simplicity of form is well balanced with a gentleness that invites the touch and modesty, which speaks of a deep comprehension of materials and a desire to highlight their qualities.
The installation explored the concept of simply living with art alongside furniture, allowing the pieces to amuse, disrupt or to serve.
“Following my first collaboration with e15, the ILMA lounge chair, I am excited to work together on this exhibition, which expresses our shared passion for authentic and natural materials.” Jonas Lutz
Lounge chair ILMA highlights the beauty of natural materials and bold simplicity. The solid wood frame is crafted from European oak or walnut and is coupled with soft and robust harness leather in natural, brandy or black. ILMA is a refined and modern interpretation of a sling chair with tacit playfulness that serves diverse environments.
