Tobias Rehberger for Artek ‘Nothing happens for a reason’

Designboom turns us onto this collaboration between German artist Tobias Rehberger and Finnish furniture makers Artek. Speaking to the boom, Rehberger said that:

“‘I like the idea of creating a visual art project which is about ‘not seeing something’. the painting method of battle ships
in the first and second world war, the so called dazzle painting, in a way for me perfectly represents this paradox.
the sculpture I created for turku is based on the same concept as the one in venice. it applies a completely different pattern
to the space, but despite its very different look, it should have the same dazzling effect
.'”

Yeah, what he said. Take a look at more shots after the leap.
