A Chair Is

What is a chair? A place to sit, a piece of art, or an object of wealth? This tongue-in-cheek work plays on the idea of cultural capital within modernist design circles, investigating the relationship between chairs as functional objects, pieces of design and symbols of status. The fabric drapes and cardboard cut-outs reappropriate popular modernist designs, and allow designer chairs to feature in any home.
