The action of sitting is a functional, and yet complicated situation.
The chair, an object designed to support the body in certain activities, has become a repository of discomfort. Partially due to prolonged periods of (stagnant) use, and also to a favoring of aesthetics over ergonomics. We sit to work, to be online, to eat, to watch, to listen, to do so many things. But do our forms really serve as functional objects? How can we re-objectify this device?
Stuhlstück is a phenomenological and playful reconsideration of how the human body might interact with the form of a chair.
