designer's own words:Teenagers begin to make choices about their possessions however tastes are fickle. The last thing a teenager would spend their pocket money on is a chair. Teenagers generally live with parents and are resticted to parental tastes. The ‘slouch’ chair allows teenagers to sit as naturally as possible without disrupting the home style. This dining chair is part of a set in which the adults use upright versions and the teenager can opt to use their own at family meals. The chair can be converted back to upright version when the teenager has left home.
