Pentagon Group 'Braced Shelf' by Wolfgang Laubersheimer
DESCRIPTIONGerman Avant-Garde shelve design of the 1980s. Wolfgang Lauberhsheimer for Pentagon Group, 1984. During this period, the Neues Deutsches Design changed the appreciation of design and aimed to strengthen the link between art and music. One of the key groups that spearheaded this movement was the Cologne-based, Avant-Garde design group pentagon which gained international recognition in 1987 by designing the much-praised Café Casino at Documenta 8. It was started in 1985 by Gerd Arens, Wolfgang Laubersheimer, Reinhard Müller, Ralph Sommer, and Meyer Voggenreiter. Inspired by Arte Povera or the Memphis Group for example; not in terms of aesthetics, Memphis favored an optimistic color palette and a slickness, while Pentagon created objects that were more rugged, clinically cool and jaunty, but sooner in terms of the group’s tongue-in-cheek, playful and unexpected approach.
