A piece from 2016. Again, it shifts the way I see my work, as if someone else made it.:
“Reach You With My Mind” (Oil on plywood-irregular pentagon shape, 45.5cm x 71.8cm, Dirk Marwig 2016)
My new object “Bestia BLanca” (White Beast) photographed on my patio at dusk (December 10th 2017) in West Vancouver, Canada.
Yet another Gap-Chair where the seat part is not directly connected to the seat back, this time constructed with wood rests from a renovation container and with plexi-glass which was also found in a bin. I designed this version with an extreme long seat back giving the bottom part a “fold” with a 90 degree angle. I wanted to make a new version of my trademark ‘Gap-Chair’ giving it a tough, blunt, constructivist look.
Dimensions: seat height: 48cm, seat width: 42.2cm, seat depth: 43.5cm
If you should copy these chairs please give me (Dirk Marwig) CREDIT for the DESIGN. Only fair!
Dirk Marwig’s “Gap-Chair” No.5 (Reclaimed scaffolding wood with white oil wash and wood glue, 92cm high, 40cm wide, 74.5cm deep; seat height: 46.5cm, seat depth: 44cm, Dirk Marwig 2017)
This photo shows the Gap-Chair with the restored drawing “Zomb” from 1995 and a still unfinished wall object made from the same stolen/reclaimed wood.
Note: Throughout ‘chair design history’ no wooden chairs where the seatback is Not directly attached to the seat have been designed or produced. The only ones that exist are my 5 “Gap Chairs”.
*I took old scaffolding wood from a construction site next to my house and converted it into my 5th “Gap-Chair”. Arrest me!
