FURNITURE’S SONGS | exhibition | Teo Jakob | 2010

On the occasion of the company’s 60th anniversary, the furniture seller Teo Jakob is offered ‘carte blanche’ at Designers’ Saturday and allowed to exhibit at the event even though they are not producers. In the installation, conceived of by Studio Hannes Wettstein, objects of furniture are repurposed so they can be used as musical instruments. Three professional musicians bring forth unexpected sounds from furnishings, lights and living accessories, combining them to create a live sound installation.
