Do Not Touch Chair

December 23rd, 2010

Dominic Wilcox his latest project is “Do Not Touch Chair”, it’s his version of a ‘buzz wire’ game. He made a sculpture of a chair by hand bending a single length of wire. The user must navigate around the wire using a metal hoop without touching the wire. If the wire is touched then they will hear his voice warning “Do not touch”.

    In one of his popular speeches Italian designer Enzo Mari talked about the obsession for designing chairs. He was quite mad about all his fellow designers, unfortunately, I only found a German quote: http://moskenstraumen.blogspot.com/2010/10/von-den-zehntausend-stuhlen-die-wir-in.html

    It’s basically about the fact that most chairs are just copies of a copy of a copy.. and that there is actually no sense in designing newer and wilder forms because all of these chairs lack their only purpose: to comfortably sit on it.
