Untitled Chair_ AL -1

From THONET 200 Project
Vintage fur, steel tubing, upholstery, silk, velvet, 85 × 65 × 66 cm (33½ x 25¾ x 26 in.).Unique.

The Untitled Chairs explore ritualized, social relationships and their physical manifestations. The backrest and seats of Marcel Breuer‘s chair are replaced, the vintage jackets equipped with new lining matching the seat covers are sewn around the chairs, thus uniting them as one object. The essentially temporary ritual of placing one‘s jacket over a chair backrest becomes a permanent component of the sculpture. The coded appropriation and occupation of a part of public space becomes an intrinsic feature of the object.
