About Wolfgang Laubersheimer
In his jocular, innovative work, designer Wolfgang Laubersheimer pursues function alongside a sense of levity. The chest of drawers Railway Container (1985) is modeled on the furniture found in trains. Made of steel and concrete, the piece is topped by a small model train that moves on a circular track through a rocky landscape. This unexpected aura of playfulness is also found in the work of designers such as Bernard Govin.
German, b. 1955, Bad Kreuznach, Germany
