“Vienna based artist and designer Helmut Palla transforms found furniture into unusual pieces of art. Palla has been collecting various objects for many years, reconfiguring them in his studio. One of the main themes in his work is furniture and its functionality. while all his works use elements from furniture pieces, many do not function as such. In this light Palla questions the functional role of these objects, showing us new possibilities that deconstruct the familiar. Is a chair a chair if you can’t sit on it? Is a chair a chair, even if it doesn’t conform to the archetypal form? These questions often come to mind when looking at Palla’s transformed designs.”
