Exhibitions > Chair Project, Eilon Armon

A collection of chairs whose point of departure is a bicycle saddle. Two types of object hold a special appeal for designer Eilon Armon: bicycles and chairs. In this collection he combines the two, and creates a series of ‘desirable objects' of the kind that evoke in the viewer a desire to have them, either due to the interesting use made of them, the unusual technology used to make them, or their optimal integration into the esthetic of the space in which they are situated. The chairs are made from a variety of materials using diverse technologies, and constitute ‘serving suggestions' that explore the concept of comfort and push it to the edge of its definition. Eilon Armon challenges the conventional thinking that chairs have to be comfortable, and proposes a different way of thinking whereby comfort is not a value, and breaking free from the need for it allows different values and parameters to determine the object's appearance.

The bicycle saddles were donated by Brooks.
