Suppressed Feelings of a Chair

The theory behind designing the Selfportrait Chair is very honest and simple. As an introvert, graduate student Ka-Lai Chan found it difficult to express her emotions lest her peers ridicule her. The stifled emotions grew like a nagging tumor and are seen as those odd blobs on this chair. Rarely do we come across an emotional side to a design accurately represented as this! Yea we live in a ruthless competitive world and life sucks, so let’s just express ourselves with design! Cheers!

    childish and fugly

  • looseroots says:

    I disagree…..would you really market this? probably not. but from a design perspective relating to concept, I think it does a great job. most designers fail to find a relationship between original concepts and final product. is it good design because “it looks cool”?

    Art not design. Sounds like a badge slogan.

  • Ronny says:

    Seing where it’s coming from i must admit it works. Eventho it triggered some very different associtiations here 😉

    Nothing i’d ever like to have, but of high emotional value. For a chair.
