Chair "The Art of Sitting" by Stine Mikkelsen

$10,465.3849% Off


Chair "The Art of Sitting" by Stine Mikkelsen Dimensions: 75 x 75 x 85 cm Materials: Composite, crushed stone and fish glue The concept behind The Art of Sitting is based on the quote by Gunnar Aagaard Andersen: ”In order to sit well, one must be able to sit differently.” The shape of the object is based on an investigation into how many different ways one can sit on a chair. The shape of the object has been found by identifying the surfaces where the body needs support. Gunnar Aagaard Andersen spent time investigating the square in his work. As Stine Mikkelsen is working with three-dimensional objects, the starting point for her project has been the cube. The objects are made of a composite material developed by the studio. It is based on crushed stone and fish glue, and is therefore a 100% natural material. Stine Mikkelsen is a Copenhagen-based material researcher and manipulatorworking within the field of experimental product design. With a background in textile design, materials have a primary role for her in boththe process as well as the final objects. Through challenging and refining methodsfrom this field, unexpected things occur which lead to new ways of making and producing. Through this, she not only challenges the way we understand textile andproduct design, she also modernises the notion of crafts.
