High Grid’ (2017) by Boris Berlin interprets the counteraction between the human body and the chair, breaking its shape down into a skeleton. In this way, the chair is reminiscent of the Bauhaus, reducing complex forms into their basic constituents. Of course, what is not there in ‘High Grid’ 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 ‘High Grid’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 ‘High Grid’ is very challenging, and the designer produces it in a partnership with a great Danish craftsman.
