080310: Mondays at Papst’s

Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln Mondays at Papst’s 19.01.10 until 21.03.10 Rose Monday at Papst’s It cannot be confirmed if he performed at the Carnival in Cologne. But each Rose Monday, since the end of the 1950's, a small group of creative and unconventional thinkers regularly met with Walter Papst. The pink ladder that led from Papst’s apartment and “Studio for Industrial Design and Product Development” to his party cellar is among the objects on display at the exhibition of the Museum for Applied Arts in Cologne. Another object is the large drum (“de decke Trumm”), on which Papst played at the Rose Monday parade. Walter Papst’s active period lasted until the mid 70’s. The humongous book-project, “Der Götterbau”, filled the rest of his life to 2008. His work as a designer took place during the 50’s and the 60’s - stylistically between the Scandinavian furniture trends of Vernon Panton and Purism. Papst’s work-spectrum commenced with an ingenious ergonomic tripod-stool construction, which he developed out of a milking stool. And there is a bathtub-like park bench made of glass-reinforced plastic, an object that even withstood a brown bear attack at the Zoo in Ulm in 1961. In contrast, Papst’s beach chair-alternative, a kind of synthetic fiber-shell, disappeared after the first stiff breeze at the Kiel firth. Papst engraved will always be remembered for his three-legged stool, which, long before the ergonomic sitting-ball alternative, was used with the backrest positioned in front. In 1955, his tripod was even recommended by for use as school furniture. In 1972, Papst developed a chair named “Munken” for IKEA, shortly before the DIY-Swedes marked the global furnishing world in blue-and-yellow.
