Escaping Chair

2015-2017 / malfunctional furniture #1


How would you feel when objects in your house behave in the way you don’t expect? In order to know that, I made the Escaping Chair, a malfunctional furniture.

The Escaping Chair is a furniture shaped device that tries to escape from nearby people in order to prevent the subject from sitting down. This device is a machine with a simple function and without any will of its own. We expect that the user feels a semblance of will in the device through their interaction with it, and treats it as another “person.”
