SEE AND BE SEEN

SEE AND BE SEEN

Project: Graduation project, Gerrit Rietveld Academy

Theme: Confrontational public furniture. 2004

This design for seating in a public place makes people more aware of themselves in relation to the others. The nine chairs are set at equal distances from each other, are neutral in form, and appear normal in their use. It is only when one wants to sit down that one realizes that the seat backs unfold in various directions, fixing previously unexpected orientations and views. The sitter cannot know in advance who they will look at or who will look at them.
