A “Seating Machines” chair object, Neil Nenner,


A “Seating Machines” chair object, Neil Nenner, - Design

Israel, 2014, bent and welded steel, wooden slats, height 105 xx cm, width 38 xx cm, depth 44 cm, height of seat 43 cm. (DRAX)

Parts of the experimental “Seating Machines” series.
“I was trying to figure where the morphological borders of what we call a seating object are. What would be the minimum structure of a functioning chair? In terms of a line in space, do we still read this object as a chair/stool/sled? Each object is placed on a different point of the spectrum, between the most familiar shape (the sled) and, on the other end, the pure form following a functional structure (the small stool). I used different types of iron and Corten steel for the structures, some places require soft materials, others stiffer ones for better springiness, and so on.” (Neil Nenner)
