georgian studio XYZ integrated architecture presents ‘zero chair‘, a handmade piece for the ‘gravity’ exhibition held at gallery joseph, in paris, france. the piece investigates the always present presence of gravity, its limitations counter-balanced by its advantages. ‘zero chair’ pushes past boundaries, overcoming the laws of physics to provide a seat for one.
