CLUB GÉANT 2016

THIS UNRELEASED PIECE CREATED IN 2016 BY MAX JUNGBLUT HAS BEEN WAITING FOR THE MOMENT IT ALL MADE SENCE, THE “NEW” TECHNIQUE WITH EPOXY RESIN LAYERS STARTED IN 2017 WITH THE CLUB MONSIEUR MMXVII. IN 2018 MAX DECIDED IT WAS TIME FOR THIS PIECE TO BE PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC EYE. THE CLUB GÉANT 2016 IS PART OF THE CLUB FAUTEUIL FAMILY AND HAS MULTIPLE POLISHED LAYERS OF TRANSPARENT RESIN. THE RESIN LAYERS PROVIDES A HIGHER CONTRAST AND A CLEAR COLOR DEFINITION OF THE WOOD. THE RESIN ALSO PROVIDES A PROTECTIVE LAYER SO YOU CAN REALLY USE THIS PIECE OF ART WITHOUT DAMAGING IT.

The Club Fauteuil family mirrors the artistic approach seen in earlier works by Max Jungblut, such as Untitled (Couch), in which the designer negates the primarily practical-oriented functions of furniture and the purely aesthetic forms of the autonomous art object to create an in-between form, or perhaps rather a form that includes both.

Where Untitled (Couch) was characterised by its monumentality and size, the Club Fauteuil family introduces a lightness and ergonomic quality that can be defined as a playful artistic gesture within the existing space of the interior. The organic structure of its lines highlights the way in which light gently interacts and plays with the piece, almost transforming it constantly as the day progresses.

These latest pieces by Max Jungblut underline the design principles that have been the backbone of the process of the designer for years, blurring the lines between archetypical, primal forms and contemporary, modern slick design. As such, the piece brings out the best in both traditional and modern interiors.
