Sit Sit Down. From seating to art objects

Eight artists from the international urban art scene – Anton Unai, Dave Decat, Flying Förtress, Jaybo Monk, Marok, Mr. Nonski, Sozyone Gonzalez and xoooox – transform well-known design classics into unique works of 'seat art'. Discover eight one-of-a-kind chairs – from the Vitra Panton and cantilevered Thonet S43 to Fritz Hansen and Arne Jacobsen's stacking 3107 – as they have never been seen before. Urban art meets furniture design – the stilwerk limited edition design gallery commissioned eight artists to create their own personal take on eight icons of design. Using a variety of techniques including stencilling, decoupage, acrylic and spray paints and ink markers, they transformed the chairs into unique seat art masterpieces. Eight artists with roots in Belgium, Germany, Spain and France brought eight completely different visual languages and styles to the project, remodelling each individual chair into a distinctive sculpture which retained its practical function.
