Robert Stadler was born in 1966 in Vienna. He studied design at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, then at ENSCI / Les Ateliers in Paris.
In 1992 he cofounded the RADI DESIGNERS group and since 2000 he has been working solo. His work is present in several private and public collections such as Fondation Cartier, FNAC, FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais.
He works for clients such as Académie des César, Dior, Maison Thierry Costes, Nissan, Orange, Ricard and Take 5 Editions.
He is represented by Carpenters Workshop gallery.
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. Questioning the object’s identity or even provoking their dissolution, are fields of interest crossing most of his projects.
