All the Little Paper Chairs

I’ve become quite fond of the world of laser-cut everything over the past few years, especially when it comes to designed artwork. I say designed artwork because this piece of display is certainly made by Sam Drury because he enjoys it, because he feels the need and has the skill to express himself by creating an image for people to look at, but there’s something else. This “Chairs” posterlike object becomes designed artwork, designwork when it’s made with its audience directly in mind. Drury knew exactly who he wanted to see this when it first popped into his mind.

As you can see, this is a laser-cut poster made of heavyweight black paper, made for YOU by designer Sam Drury. It’s quite nice, yes? Super well made, extremely finely cut!

What would YOU classify this object as?

Design?

Artwork?

Or some third thing?

Designer: Sam Drury

    Wow this is cool. I really like laser cutting and expect we'll be seeing a lot more of it as it becomes more readily available to the average artist.

    There is no useful purpose, so it is decorative art unless it is used for advertising. I want to like it but somehow the positive/negative composition does not have a pleasant feel (wow effect).

    Looks like attractive advertising art for chairs. Nice looking but definately not living room art. Perfect for selling chairs or companies that sell chairs.

    Definitely graphic arts and not product design. But very striking.
