Klaus Steinmetz Arte Contemporaneo

COSTA RICA LIFE – An exhibition in the Klaus Steinmetz Gallery makes clear that a chair is more than a piece of furniture to sit on.

Made of wood, metal, fabric, natural fibers, stone, concrete and even waste materials, these chairs creativity deployed 20 artists.

“The chair is an everyday object, but also a design icon. In this exhibition, we find different approaches ranging from conventional chairs to more conceptual approaches, “said gallery director Klaus Steinmetz.

Metal pipes, wooden sleepers that were once used on railroads, computer parts, steel, galvanized steel and glass, were used as raw material for these works.

The chair designed by Marco Mora offers a nostalgic look at TVs the ’50s and ’60s, while Pamela Hernandez structures fail to give old computers a new use. Montserrat Mesalles Tuborete designed his work from industrial pipelines and pulleys. The ergonomic seat consists of a conducting tube of vapor which emerges from the wall and has the support of a compressor pulley.

Klaus Steinmetz Contemporary Art was founded in December of the year 2000. Since then they have been home ​​to dozens of openings with many leading Latin American artists such as Luis Gonzalez Palma, Javier Marin and Jose Bedia. Their collection includes Botero, Julio Larraz and Adriana Varejao.
