Story »The most beautiful ›chair‹ since the throne of Charlemagne is simultaneously a ›vulgar‹ object of mass production! Itscreation marks the victory of the Bauhaus vision: the use of machinery to expand the production of consumer goods; the act of building culture rather than destroying culture. As a creator, I declare: two materials could not enter into a connection more pure ... As a sculptor, I declare: sculpture could not create a space more sublime ... As a restless philosopher, I inquire: how could I marry this purity with grace, sensuality, economy and the commonplace utility of the everyday?« 

(Stefan Wewerka, 1985)
