Dissecting a task chair

Dissecting a task chair

Nov 18 2011, 6:00 pm 0 Marco Russo

An office chair taken apart and dissected in more than 65 pieces by American designer Emily Gibson. An installation that goes beyond the mere artistic meaning. A study and a review on the life cycle of a product, and the basis of the concepts embodied in the graduation thesis of the designer. An interesting project that shows the estimated duration of a common chair in an office, ranging from three to five years, and compares it to the time required to dispose of some of its parts, more than a million years.

Designer: Emily Gibson
