Rib presents meubels, Charlois?, a showroom for furniture by Micha Zweifel. For your comfort you will find benches, tables, shelves, and decor. The designs mimic and evaluate Charlois marginalia: the social façades, repetition and ornamentation of boredom. Meubels are mobile units. They maneuver style, play and dis-identification. Furnishing facilitates, it’s a cooperative medium, an intermediary to our company. On view, for a limited time, at Rib. Come by!

Micha Zweifel (*1987 CH) is a sculptor, writer and publisher. He graduated from the Rietveld Academie in 2010 and the Piet Zwart Institute Master of Fine Art in 2014. He is the co-director of Publication Studio Rotterdam. His work seeks parallels between the dynamics of social phenomena–such as stage fright, boredom, desire–and the production of sculpture and text.

meubels, Charlois? was kindly supported by Centrum Beeldende Kunst Rotterdam and the 2014 Promotie Prijs of The Piet Zwart Institute/Willem de Kooning Academie. With thanks to Fleur Groenendaal and Jeroen Chabot.
