“the venetian chair is a remembrance of childhood, when building fortresses, hideouts and our own world with pieces of furniture was our utmost pleasure. a chair is the archetype of furniture, an object that assists us as we work, relax, or gather for a meal or discussion. with the generator it is endowed with a further function: the “stacking chair” becomes an assembly part to construct spaces.”

[title + text + images] today’s title, text and imagery comes from raumlabor’s the generator project description. i highly recommend perusing through raumlabor’s many interventions and narratives. great stuff.
[more places to sit + more participation] this project came to mind after yesterday’s post on the community assisted tai ping bridge project. for more on chairs as space see the previous ayh post on doris salcedo. for more on chairs as politics see this previous post comparing ai wei wei and gianni pettena.
