new york-based designer stefan sagmeister‘s ‘darwin chair’ for dutch design company droog is constructed from a free swinging structure that is comprised of more than 200 sheets of attached prints. like a pad of paper, the chair offers its audience opportunities to consider its functionality as a presentational object. as the top sheet gets dirty or tired, the user can simply rip it off, revealing the layer below, and quickly transforming the appearance of the chair (with the remaining perforation eventually forming a comfortable head rest). the chair persistently evolves the visual identity of the pieces within the space it occupies. each of the sheets of Tyvek® are printed with intricate patterns abstracting the creation of the universe, making their way through the creation of the world, from the beginning of plant, animal and human life, all the way to the digital revolution.

 

the ‘darwin chair’ is being shown as part of droog’s presentation at design miami/ basel 2010 from june 15th – 19th, located at booth G28, hall 5, messe basel, messeplatz.

  • i want something that can be 200 other versions of itself in my living room. it’s like it parodies and embraces fickle interior design impulses all at once. what an idea.

  • such an innovative juxtaposition between graphic and form. it’s an interesting collaboration between sagmeister and laarman.
    and, how fantastic that you can change the thematic scheme of your chair!
    Awesomely done.
