The latest work of artist and designer Max Jungblut in his long-term research project Searching Club Series is the Chaise lounge in the Searching club style. The title of the presented work explains everything. No more words needed Max explicitly noted.

With his new long-term research project Searching Chairs, artist and designer Max Jungblut embarks on a new exploratory journey into the tensions between artistic autonomy and economic, capitalist production processes. This new series, to which new pieces will be added continuously, playfully takes the form of a search for a perfect prototype of a new chair, without having the actual goal of realizing an all-encompassing and finished final design. Instead, the search itself becomes the artistic project and the process of trying to reach a final goal becomes the source of unique artistic output.

The high-end design pieces by Atelier Jungblut testify to an authentic approach to natural resources and reflect the ambition to transcend the boundaries between the interior and the exterior, between form and functionality, and between artistic object and design product. The modern era is typified by radical shifts in technology, industry and culture. Increasingly, we ask ourselves where form and function meet and how the two relate to one another. In a similar vain, the borders between culture and nature have lately been continuously redefined and reassessed, testifying to a tension between mass-production and craftsmanship, and raising questions about the contemporary meaning of artistry, labour, auto-education and DIY-mentalities. These issues are the main themes that Atelier Jungblut addresses throughout its artistic oeuvre.
