As perhaps the most recognisable of all pieces of furniture, the chair is generally taken for granted and is perhaps the item that best represents our society’s increasing dependence on artificial constructions over the centuries. Ancient man sat on the ground, now we sit on chairs. But “This is not a chair” it is a contemplative piece created to reflect not only the optical surroundings of the piece itself but also our, and its, place in the environment – the home, the world, the cosmos. Sometimes what happens around an object is more interesting than the object itself.
