jason ramey: half wall, full desk and chairwall

currently a graduate student at the university of wisconsin in madison, jason ramey has created new works, ‘half wall, full desk’ and ‘chairwall.’ driven by simultaneous interests in architecture and furniture, ramsey integrates walls into his designs, reframing the static, traditionally unobserved forms. molding is extended around the tabletop of ‘half wall, full desk’ and the base of ‘chairwall,’ making the table and chair of each piece appear as extensions of the adjacent upright surfaces.

the beginning of a six-piece body of work, the two pieces provoke consideration of how space and its surrounding structures affect user interactions with furniture.
