Behold a chair with a real big story of intent inside it. This is a project by designer Shawn Weiland and it goes by the title “Affectual Chair.” It’s made of plywood and offers a relationship between materials, between user and object, and amongst the people interacting with the chair. This chair disposes of extra, superfluous, or otherwise decorative elements and goes for what the designer calls a purist formal language. Decide for yourself in the gallery below.
