Cross Cultural Chairs: Diversifying Modern Seating | Editor: Matteo Guarnaccia
Back in stock soon.
The anatomy of our bodies requires sitting; but do we design seats in the same way? Have our ideas around 'sitting' been colonised by modern design? And how is the diverse, social-cultural act of sitting itself reflected in this functional commodity?
In observing and analysing social and cultural differences through chairs from eight cultures in the most populated countries, Sicilian designer Matteo Guarnaccia went on a field research to portray each country, in collaboration with selected local design studios, to situate each cultural context into the form of a chair. This project diversifies the supposedly mundane parts of chair-culture and chair design, to open the conversation of identity, community and a reality divided into a global and local conglomerate expression through chairs.
