I NEVER PROMISED YOU a chair garden

I love this instalation by designer Oki Sato (studio nendo). These beautiful ceramic pieces focus on the story of growing furniture. It’s something I have never thought to deeply about, but all furniture pieces evolve from previous works. As the designer states… “A stool grows a backrest, and becomes a chair. When an armrest sprouts from it, it is an armchair. The stool grows sideways, and becomes a bench, or lengthwise and becomes a lounge chair, or even a bed.” I love the simplicity of these building blocks of craftsmanship.
