My goal was to design a chair that narrates the surrounding space and at the same time talks about it, like the ancient theatrical masks that try to convey the archetypes of emotions.
The primary idea focuses on a folding chair that works like a human jacket, made of aluminum sheet. The personification is achieved starting from the form itself and through graphic interventions it is imprinted on the surface of the sheet metal. A chair that can be made personal through the meeting with the user, as the simplicity of its form predisposes it to its enrichment with a sheer number of expressions.
Nowadays spaces are more structured by the objects than by the architecture itself: the significance of the object is such that it takes over the room hosted by intervening radically in its architecture. Each recent form enriches the previous one by creating unexpected relationships with the space and the owner.
Surfaces, holes, and reliefs are achieved thanks to the possibilities offered by today's technology. The chair can be produced in all possible variations through an electronic machine capable of memorizing and adapting the molding, drilling, assembling, and painting software.
