Forming History

For Forming History Tino Seubert selected a number of significant moments in history, all of which involved furniture, and used each of them to develop new forms for a furniture piece. He used photographic records as reference points for each of these specific situations in history. The events of the past register as abstract shadows, deformations or traces on the newly designed object. The furniture has a way of capturing a moment and indeed steadies it in time. Thus, it is history that gives furniture its form – ‘History is forming furniture’.
