    Gaggenau Built-in Gas Burner

    Presented at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2008, Milan, this gas burner starts to fill in some gaps in the Gaggenau product range. A flush mounted gas burner is a rare find, and this model is suitable for a stone countertop or simply welded into a stainless steel.

    Icon: Richard Serra

    Criticized for being cold, imposing, dehumanizing, one of Serra’s major public works was removed by a committee from New York City’s Federal Plaza. Emerging in the 1960s, he was part of a generation of artists who worked to redefine what sculpture could be. After experimenting with a variety of materials, he settled on thick sheets of steel as his preferred material, and went on to create some of the most frightening spaces imaginable. His prints are just as ‘impressive’.
