“Bergstermann made a name for himself in his day with the humorous restoration of historical furniture damaged by the war. He takes away what no longer works and reassembles, what still corresponds to the original face of the chairs. Although completely new shapes are created, that are often unusable, the exact reproduction of workmanship and material means, that the original shape is still very easy to imagine, as all elements are still represented.”
“Nr. 014, Adolf Bergstermann, Noch-Stuhl I (Restaurierter Stuhl), 1950” is part of Polzin’s fictional design history.
