We are happy to announce that a new commissioned work by German Artist Albert Weis has been installed in the foyer of the new Daimler Executive Board building in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim.
The sculpture parts, 2019, refers directly to the form of the polyhedron in Albrecht Dürer’s engraving Melencolia I from 1514, one of the first depictions of an abstract form in modern times. The polyhedron is an archaic motif as well as an important mathematical figure of modernity. The sculpture’s basic shape of the triangle refers to the Mercedes star. This is also inscribed in the mirror-polished stainless steel base as a basic form. For the sculpture, the outlines of the polyhedron were duplicated and then folded and divided until a complex new, at the same time floating and stable form was created. Viewers moving around in the room can discover continuously changing, color-transparent spatial drawings.
