EXHIBITION
10 TABLES
Klemens SchillingerAusstellungsdauer:
15. - 23. März | MI - SA 13 - 18 Uhr
and by Appointment
The M24 table derives its name from its defining feature: a 24 millimeter thick threaded bar onto which a cast aluminum base, a tabletop and a handle can be easily screwed upon. This allows for height adjustment of the tabletop and effortless assembly without any tools. Although the table's aesthetic could be described as raw or crude it remains one of my favorite pieces.In late 2023, I was invited to showcase my work at the furniture store Behan und Thurm in Vienna. For the presentation, I decided to elevate a selection of objects on a slightly raised platform made from red-colored MDF sheet. As I planned the arrangement of the objects. I saw the potential to repurpose the MDF sheet for a future project. To emphasize this idea, I cut out a single 45cm diameter circle from the sheet. which became the tabletop for the M24 Table. Placing the table within this cut-out circle made it
the centerpiece of the presentation.
However the journey of bringing the M24 table to life began nearly four years earlier in 2020, when I created a prototype for my exhibition "Hardware“ at Galerie Rauminhalt. Later that year the prototype was acquired by the Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna, suggesting a promising future for the table. And despite attracting interest from several companies, none of them followed through with producing the table. A scenario not uncommon in today's oversaturated design world.Therefore I decided to take matters into my own hands. With the support of Gallery Zippenfenig, a limited edition of ten M24 tables was brought to life. Produced locally within Viennas 15th and 16th districts with the expertise of craftsmen Bernhard Ranner,
Martin Petermann and Hermann Viehauser.
While I take pride in the prototype's inclusion in a design collection seeing the table produced, even in a small batch fills me with optimism. It signifies a potential life beyond the confines of a museum storage room and occasional presentations suggesting a future where the table is utilized and becomes a part of everyday life.Photography: Leonhard Hilzensauer

-English version below-Ausstellung mit Werken von Bruno Pollak für Josef & Leopold Quittner Wien, um 1930 (Sammlung des Architekten).Über die Villa Rezek:Auf einem sonnigen Hügel im Norden Wiens steht ein bedeutendes Zeugnis der Wiener Architektur der Zwischenkriegszeit. 1932/33 beauftragte das jüdische Ehepaar Anna und Philipp Rezek den damals wenig bekannten Architekten Hans Glas mit der Errichtung einer Villa im Stil der Neuen Sachlichkeit.Moderne Ausstattung und Materialien sowie innovative technische Lösungen zeichnen das Gebäude aus. Die Sonnenterrassen, Schiebefenster und die Lichtfülle in allen Räumen erinnern an die zeitgenössischen Gesundheitsbauten, die das Heilmotto „Licht – Luft – Sonne“ propagierten. Könnte das ein Zufall sein, da beide Klienten Ärzte waren?Der abgestufte Gartenbereich des Landschaftsarchitekten Albert Esch führt die Architektur des Gebäudes nach außen fort und ist teilweise erhalten.*Conservation Management Plan Villa Rezek-English version-Exhibition with works by Bruno Pollak for Josef & Leopold Quittner Wien, circa 1930 (collection of the architect).About Villa Rezek:Located on a sunny hill in northern Vienna stands a major testimony of Vienna’s architecture from the interwar era. In 1932/33 the Jewish couple Anna und Philipp Rezek commissioned the then little-known architect Hans Glas with this Villa following the style of the New Objectivity.Modern equipment and materials and innovative technical solutions characterize the building. The sun terraces, sliding windows and the abundance of light in all rooms are a reminder of the contemporary health buildings that promoted the healing motto „light – air – sun“. As both clients were doctors, could this be a coincidence?The stepped garden area from landscape designer Albert Esch continues the building’s architecture on the outside and is partially preserved.*Conservation Management Plan Villa Rezek

Never At Home
Am Sachsenplatz 4 - 6

- German version below -„A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sittin' there. But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home. [...] A room is still a room, oh, even when there's nothin' there but gloom.
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home."
A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME is a multimedia exhibition and happening which raises the question of function and homemaking by deconstructing ideas of living as well as observing (consciously or subconsciously) and understanding home and housing. Spanning design, gastronomy, photography, video, and performance, the exhibition sheds light on the importance of critically assessing the acts of consumption and ‚occupation' (space, home, and ownership) in art, culture, and society from multiple viewpoints and angles."With works by: Alexandra Stanic, Galerie Zippenfenig featuring Helmut Palla, Simone Raihmann, Daliah Toure, Brooklyn J. Pakathi and Laurene Southe.Platform Partner Vienna Design Week 2023- German version -A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME ist eine Multimedia-Ausstellung und ein Happening, das die Frage nach dem Zusammenspiel von Wohnraum und Funktion aufwirft. Ideen der Lebens(raum)gestaltung werden dekonstruiert sowie (bewusst oder unbewusst) beobachtet und Haus und Wohnen erfasst. Die Ausstellung umfasst Design, Gastronomie, Fotografie, Video und Performance und beleuchtet die Bedeutung einer kritischen Bewertung der Konsum- und Besetzungsakte (Raum, Zuhause und Eigentum) in Kunst, Kultur und Gesellschaft aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln und Perspektiven.Mit Arbeiten von: Alexandra Stanic, Galerie Zippenfenig featuring Helmut Palla, Simone Raihmann, Daliah Toure, Brooklyn J.
