After ‘Grid Chair’ (1999) and ‘High Grid’ (2017), Boris Berlin embarks on a new grid adventure with his latest work ‘Grid Bench’ (2022). In his new work, the artist continues to interpret the counteraction between the human body and the act of sitting. Boris Berlin’s work is reminiscent of the Bauhaus, where complex forms are reduced to their basic constituents. Of course, what is not there in ‘Grid Bench’ is just as important as what is; the negative spaces invite speculation and indicate many facets of the body that cannot be represented. In the words of Boris Berlin: “A geometrically precise wooden grid of the iconic chair silhouette, transformed by the memory of a human body…” The grid flow is the secret to the ‘Grid Bench’s’ appeal: it seems to say that the human body, however ordered, cannot be contained. From a craftsmanship point of view, the construction of the Grid Bench is very challenging, and the designer produces it in a partnership with a great Danish craftsman.
