giving the impression of sinking into the wall, ‘wairs’ by industrial designer nikos tsoumanis features recycled chairs cut up and hung upside down. the legs of the furniture pieces protrude upwards, creating a usable hook for hanging clothes on, while the angled seats form a place to leave personal objects such as keys and wallets. the entire construction is made from used chairs, meaning that each model is unique. the installation sees the hangers placed in different positions, their angles vary, playfully suggesting that they have randomly been sunk into the side of the wall. the sculptural storage device not only provides sufficient space to hang items on, but it also becomes a centerpiece for the room.
