Chair by Kossi Aguessy

Please Do Not Sit

"What is behind the statement "Please do not sit?”
This chair carries a strong social statement: sitting on it is to dominate, as on a throne.

Created for the exhibition "Please Do Not Sit" at the Tools Gallery, Paris, the 'Useless Tool' by African designer Kossi Aguessy is a marvelous piece of art. Indeed it is built like a skyscraper, with the same calculations of lift which it stands. While the chair appears like a folded paper, the materials used are really amazing...

A layer of steel, a carbon layer, then topped with nextel- the same materials used to make stealth aircraft. Yes, the chair is undetectable to radar!
