Profile. Stefan Wewerka

The New Collection


„Gifted deformer of the ordinary“ is a characterisation that the artist- and designer-architect Stefan Wewerka has been once described with. Stefan Wewerka (born in Magdeburg in 1928) studied at the university for fine arts in Berlin.


His first sculptures of chairs and multiples originated in 1961 – objects, which Wewerka dissected and assembled in a new way. In 1967 he invented the tricolor to rip: the French flag which can be trisected by zippers.


Since 1977 Wewerka designs everyday objects, also in his own special manner.
