EDITION BRUTALISM | Werner Düttmann
FROM: April 12, 2021
Location: Alexandrinenstraße 118-121, 10969 Berlin
Uli Aigner released a special Brutalism edition exclusive to König Gallery. The edition is inspired by the Brutalist architect Werner Düttmann, and 4 unique collections based on 4 different Düttmann buildings across Berlin.
Uli Aigner translates an essential aspect of the architectural style called Brutalism into the material porcelain: from a mineral compound similar to cement, porcelain, she throws quick crude forms for human use. Aigner derives vessel cross-sections from blueprints of Düttmann buildings in Berlin.
Werner Düttmann's buildings, interior designs and furniture take measure of the human body. The ONE MILLION dinnerware from the Edition Brutalism establishes a relationship between one's own body and the Düttmann architecture. The vessels are numbered chronologically and are part of ONE MILLION, an overall project designed to last a lifetime.
