Arp Armchair

By Linteloo

German-French artist Jean (Hans) Arp (1886-1966) recognized a human’s need for silence and feared its disappearance from the modern world: ‘Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence.’ In 1942, he dedicated one of his most famous sculptures, ‘Sculpture de Silence, Corneille’ to the virtue of quietude. Its curvaceous shape and the underlying ideas, inspired Sebastian Herkner to design his modular and versatile Arp collection: soft, harmonious and, indeed, visually ‘quiet’.
