Achter

DESIGN DR. PETER DRAENERT

The “Achter”-Model consists of individual  glass  plates for each place setting. The pedestal of the 1318-series is made of  MDF veneered and lacquered in black; the metal parts are in polished chrome.
 
The company founder, Dr. Peter Draenert, has designed, beside this table series, numerous products of the DRAENERT collection, many of them are still relevant today. Each piece of furniture should have a distinctive personal signature - an extraordinary DRAENERT line.
The visionary and designer originally studied philosophy, history of art, German studies, and psychology – certainly very important features of his creative  process.
This table series is in accordance with the philosophical, psychological and sociological idea of modern narcissism of the individual in the lifestyle bath of the masses.
People fend for themselves. They are self-sufficient, look for themselves and their needs, especially during a formal meal. It is, therefore, symbolic to separate the large table, shared by all, into individual areas and still further into individual functional areas. A traditional, general procedure has been de-familiarized and stylised to a new order.
