Robert Stadler

Artist Biography

Robert Stadler was born in 1966 in Vienna. He studied design at IED/Milan and at ENSCI/Paris. In 1992 he cofounded the RADI DESIGNERS group which was active until 2OO8. His work is present in several private and public collections such as Fondation Cartier, Fonds National d'Art Contemporain, MAK - Museum for Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna, Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris. He works for clients such as Académie des César, Dior, Maison Thierry Costes, Nissan, Orange, Ricard, Take 5 Editions and Thonet. In 2O12 Robert Stadler receives the "Prix Liliane Bettencourt pour l'Intelligence de la main" together with Siegeair's craftsmen.
Robert Stadler intervenes in very diverse fields, obliterating all hierarchies between free proposals, industrial and public commissions. He explores the exhibition space in order to scramble the usual categories of art and design. He questions the status of the object as work of art or product as well as the border between preciousness and lowliness, elegance and vulgarity, the serious and the absurd.
