About Flora

Flora Lechner is a designer from Vienna, Austria, currently based in the Netherlands.

In her work she takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining sculpture, design and moving image. She first and foremost examines the utility and handling suggested by an object or material. She tries to interrupt, repurpose or even overemphasize the suggestion by confronting the object with its absurdities. In this way, she plays with guidelines and imagination, exploring different levels of reality and challenging the conventions of shifts in form and material, always maintaining a humorous perspective. She likes to see her works as small stages or potential action spaces, playing with the idea of activation and ghostly stasis.
