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, where he cofounded the RADI DESIGNERS group in 1992. Since 2000 he has been working solo while simultaneously continuing his activity with the group.
Robert Stadler intervenes in very diverse fields, obliterating all hierarchies between free proposals and industrial 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, between elegance and vulgarity, between the serious and the absurd.
Robert Stadler lives and works in Paris and Rio de Janeiro.
