LOST IN TRANSITION

Urban Chair

What we need to question is bricks, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, the way we spend our time, our rhythms.

To question that which seems to have ceased forever to astonish us.

We live, true, we breathe, true; we walk, we go downstairs, we sit at a table in order to eat, we lie down on the bed in order to sleep.

How? Where? When? Why?"

                                               - Georges Perec, L’Infra-ordinaire

Due to the technological era we live in and the social pattern caused by social media, we no longer are focused on physical social interactions rather on virtual ones. “Lost in Transition” is an urban object-space comprised of two chairs connected with an arch, which enforces a physical face-to-face interaction while the periphery stools focuses on a solitary moment for writing, reading or enjoying the surrounding.

Blurring the boundaries between objects and spaces, the structure adapts to the ephemerality of spaces today through its versatility and enables numerous spatial configurations in various environments to create fleeting scenarios in a city.​
