The members of the collective For Use, founded in 1998, are Christoph Katzler, Sven Jonke and Nikola Radeljković. The team is based in Vienna and Zagreb and develops a wide range of designs in partnership with big names from the furnishing industry.
Since 1999, the collective has carried out projects in the fields of interior, urban, exhibition, experimental and stage design under the "Numen" label. Since 2008, one area of focus has been the development and implementation of installations such as Tape, Tuft, String, Net and Tube that viewers can walk into or around. The installations have been exhibited at venues including Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt and Federation Square in Melbourne, and have attracted great attention worldwide.
On the Olympus Perspective Playgrounds Numen / For Use shows/showed the following installation(s):
Cologne 2016: "Tube"
Tube is a new installation concept constructed of stitched safety nets which assume a form of a closed hose that pulsates and oscillates in the longitudinal section. The object is suspended from surrounding surfaces with numerous synthetic ropes, channelling a giant convulsing centipede.
Such dispersed structural support enables even distribution of forces and allows the structure to feel soft and fully transparent as it transcends the architectural void, causing the sensation of free floating for the person inside. The orthogonal scheme of host-space is fractured by irregular diagonals and oblique perspectives created by the jagged progression of the tube.
The human crawler within experiences architectural environment from unexpected, surreal angles as (s)he moves through the mesh artery which supports the body but lets the eyes fly and explore, resembling a strange case of "bird-worm" amalgamation.
Tube’s irregular geometry defined by varying disposition of support strings makes it a perfect parasite – universally adaptable to new contexts and spaces.
Munich 2015: "Tape"
Berlin 2014: "Net"
