Furniture Glyph: Chair [cubed]

Lounge Chair: Fabricated by Todd Senf


This chair is a cube with formal deformations to insure bodily comfort. It is a series of lines that inscribes the body's place to sit; it is an assemblage of planes for the body to sit upon; and it is a compilation of negative spaces for the body to sit within.


The Chair [cubed] is derived from two precedents: LeCorbusier's Grand Confort Petit, more commonly known as the Cube Chair, a mass-produced chair for consumption by a modern population; and the Adirondack Chair, a vernacular chair crafted from standard 1 x 4 wood planks. The Chair [cubed], therefore, sits between craft and commodity.
