Folded Land, a modular chaise lounger

2016

 

The form of this piece is based on the classic bean bag chair, as interpreted through a modular lens. One is able to arrange the chaise lounge to their comfort needs. The design is also a metaphor for the body’s own need to physically connect with the earth’s soil. One imagines altering one’s environment to suit the needs of their body. It is as if one were to scoop up the earth and mold a piece of furniture to use. It is the pleasure of lying in the grass, but in one’s own home.
