For the exhibition LIVING ROOM in the Berlin project space tête, Stefan Alber conceived an extensive sculpture that refers to the American interior designer Dorothy Draper, more precisely to the exhibition design of the overview show ‘The high style of Dorothy Draper’ dedicated to her in the Museum of the City of New York. Draper was known for her strict black-and-white compositions, which she contrasted with floral patterned wallpaper and neo-baroque upholstered furniture.

Stefan Alber corrects the exhibition architecture and tilts an archway onto the floor, thus taking up the spatial structure of tête. At the border between usable furniture and artistic work, his sculpture served as a presentation area, seating area as well as a concert stage throughout the exhibition.
