What makes an artist an artist?

This question has long occupied theorists and philosophers.

 

For the artist Konrad Friedel, the urge to create furniture, lights, objects and sculptures is closely linked to his love for beauty and perfectionism as he defines it himself.  Being completely absorbed by the passion to innovate and surprise, he spontaneously changed his profession after having finished his technically oriented education. Taking pleasure in handcrafting activities, he was inspired to teach himself joinery with an enormous autodidactic effort.

 

After a short time, the first big orders were obtained. With a number of aficionados and a diversification of his creativity always increasing.

Progressively, concrete, stone, metal and steel were added to the natural timber creations. Furthermore, he learnt all of the best possible techniques to use these materials most effectively and in the most many-sided ways.

 

Friedel’s light objects are unique specimen taking shape under his watchful eye, without any classical shape or geometrical focus, yet perfectly and unexpectedly harmonious. The various irregularly shaped segments, rings and intersections are being united to give birth to his famous “SCHALENTIERE”, individually shaped light fittings, infinitely varied in shape and size and internally coated with a wide range of different colours.

 

In terms of design and technical skills, the artist has in the meanwhile ventured far beyond the scope of his initial work.

He is now creating for his customers a large variety of complete interiors, even giant aluminium sculptures magnifying parks and gardens.

 

Without any doubt, Konrad Friedel’s unremitting efforts will result in him attaining still greater recognition for his unique high and outstanding works of art.
