basic chair at depot basel 2016
This piece is driven by reduction.
How small can it be?
It could be smaller than you would think.
It is never crippled if it balances this brave.
Comfort was achieved on a foundation
of something very narrow.
Once you put these chairs in a stack,
they become a tower. Tower stands
for loneliness, but this one has a social potential.
