Chair 32 / Chair

Chair 32
Chair 32

In the context of the current global terrorism and the consequential wars, I wanted to create an object that processes the tags "crossing borders", "trust" and "peace". So the Chair 32 has arisen.
Daily exceed thousands of refugees on their escape to a better life their personal limits and as perforce also national borders. The Chair 32 embodies this fact through the visually and physically transgression of its frame. Composed of three simple parts, the Chair 32 will be a sign of the unexpected (frame), the confidence (seat) and the secureness (backrest). Three phases which I wish in a positive sense to each refugee.
