Tobias Rehberger, ‘We Never Work on Sundays’ (1994)
Rehberger – from memory and with scant regard to technical accuracy – drew icons of 20th century design, including pieces by Marcel Breuer, Alvar Aalto and Gerrit Rietveld. He then took them to Cameroon and, working with local artist Pascale Martine Tayou, employed Cameroonian craftsmen to make replicas based on the drawings.
