Under Cover Chairs
1997, upholstered furniture

In a way a follow up on the earlier Seven Chairs in Seven Days project, but unlike these the Under Cover Chairs were ment to sneak into a livingroom. An attempt to create strong images by concentrating on the function of an object. Almost creating furniture as pictograms: clear images that express their funtion in a very clear way, serving the capability of the users to associate about the potentiall use of objects.
The Choice to upholster in blankets was made in a time where decorative patterns were heardly available in upholstery fabrics.001 - chair and footstool, 1997
