In the crowded world of chair design, I was surprised to discover a common sitting position that did not receive the proper design treatment. The familiar sitting position on the edge of the seat with legs spread forward, is regarded as a defiant improvisation, labeled "incorrect" due to the design of the standard chair. This unfilled design territory appealed to me, by being untreated and in the aspiration to design a product that will make the improvisation "correct".
The thin metal chair takes the minimum required for sitting and places it in the room while emphasizing the space formed by the subtraction and the morphological and psychological tension it generates. The effort was invested mostly in the attempt to create an unconventional design that will support the iconic singularity of the chair's structure on the one hand, without engulfing it in visual excess on the other hand.
