Antifragilität: A bis D – Möbelserie für Minimalisten und Wartezimmer / Antifragility: A to D – Furniture series for minimalists and waiting roomsEssentially a wardrobe, this ensemble consists of a series ofobjects, or rather figures, the forms of which are based on a simple geometric system. Stripped down to their bare essentials, they move between many opposite poles, such as of decomposition and stability, or abstract and concrete, while their mass is countered by their fragile appearance, referencing voids. Variable, users can further develop them to their needs. “This series is as bare as a skeleton can possibly be,“ says Fischer, “It is up to the users to choose and add the functional parts whenever that seems appropriate, and answers their needs. So bit by bit A-D will reshape itself through the habits and mannerisms of its owners”.
