“Nothing Happens for a Reason” in the Logomo Coffee

The German artist Tobias Rehberger created, with the collaboration of the iconic furniture company Artek, the installation “Nothing Happens for a Reason” in the Logomo Coffee in Turku, Finland.

The space is a white base with graphic black lines that overlap each other and appear on the furniture. The lines come together in the same space, which is completely void of color, with one exception: an orange line coming out of a lamp of the same color and crosses the interior of the café.





This is not the first time that the German designer collaborates with Artek, he also worked for the cafeteria of the Venice Biennale in 2009, an ingenious space that distorts the perception of the observer, which also uses black and white lines and a psychedelic pattern colors that pervades the entire floor, ceiling and furniture.
