SCHWEINI DIE ORIGAMISAU – Object without features

Our passion for awakened thoughts, the joy of research and the fascination for the essence of matter are the driving force behind the emergence of our objects.SCHWEINI DIE ORIGAMISAU The spirit of Strala is that of a seeker who is constantly challenged to get closer to the cause of the substance and to understand what is hidden behind the curtain. Strala pursues the scent of an intriguing idea, not to kill her, but to breathe life into her.

Where different worlds collide, the frictional forces that we create through our object art & amp; Furniture materialize. Because precisely there, the thought is no longer black or white – it is completely free of values. For a fraction of a moment, there is that immediacy which contains neither knowledge nor meaning, and is therefore more sensuous than anything else in the world.

In recent years, Strala has created a unique collection of art objects that is independent of short-lived trends and constraining norms. Strala’s objects are acknowledged and appreciated as timeless, precise and attractive works of art and use. This is Strala’s DNA.

With the series TMS I researched the vulnerability and convertibility of plains and structures and reached the borders of the material’s possibilities by selectively cutting it. I analyzed how the material reacts, and what was possible without any strong effort. By this the plain mutated into a volume. It is a metamorphose, but not generating a completely different object. Rather a metamorphose on half way. Depending on the perspective and light, the result flickers between emptiness, surface, and volume. SCHWEINI is produced with the same technic as the light series TMS is. It consists of a rectangular copper sheet and can easily be folded by hand. In contrast to TMS SCHWEINI is a completed metamorphose. The sheet transforms into a completely different object. An object that, like the sheet, has no function. By this, Schweini celebrates only the folding process metamorphose itself.
