‘sitting chairs’ by lucas maassen, 2004

‘sitting chairs’ by lucas maassen is one of the many designs featured in the museum of modern art’s exhibit, ‘design and the elastic mind’. the project brings the simple form of the chair to life through subtle additions. small human characteristics such as feet or a kneeling chair add a touch of whimsy to the otherwise mundane forms. long time designboom readers may notice that the ‘sitting chairs’ bare a striking resemblance to an entry in our 2005 teenage furniture design competition. the entry actually belongs to maassen, who created a variation on the ‘sitting chairs’ specifically for teenagers.
