As a designer, the chair is one of those pieces of furniture that you can’t avoid drawing: chairs are everywhere and we are using them every day. Thus I came to reflect on the initial creation of the chair and the genesis of seating – from the first functional stools and benches to the symbolism of authority and power that the first chairs had vested in them. I’d like to bring you on a journey that goes back to the origins of the human race’s need for seating and see what we can create using only the materials we find around us… The bigger the constraints, the more our creativity is challenged!
