The asymmetric chair, B1, can be seen as representative of this collaborative work. Its forerunners include chair sculptures which lead to a product with multiple seating options, one of which is the wide cobbler’s chair appreciated by Wewerka. The B1 stands solidly on three legs, one part of the back acts as an armrest, and changing the seated position can actually be suggested by the shape pattern and material. This is no longer about sitting in rows; instead, it enables a range of conversations and activities. The detail in the finish, with tapered legs and smooth transitions in the backrest for instance, shows just how far removed the B1 is from bricolage, developed as a stand-alone object working in a formal and functional harmony conducive to non-hierarchical communication. An aspiration which is also fulfilled by Wewerka’s other designs for Tecta.
