Chairs for charity.
The Venduehuis der Notarissen approached fourteen Dutch designers with the question to design a chair for charity. The designers were allowed to choose a chair that had been previously offered for auction at the auction house, located in The Hague. The task we gave to Ed Annink, Atelier Ted Noten, Jan des Bouvrie, and Ineke Hans – amongst others – was clear: get creative!
As though the chair absorbs a new memory whenever someone sits on it and grows larger until it has become a throne. As contrast, we replaced the old back with a cheerful, pink acrylic one. In order to allow the person who sits on the chair to house memories or personal belongings, we added a zipper into the seat.
