Frankfurt designer Kai Linke has created a collection of furniture by manipulating the archetypal plastic garden chair.
Parts of the chairs have been mirrored to create symmetrical forms.
"Due to the fact that some of the chairs are hard or nearly impossible to use as normal seating objects it allows many thoughts in between,"says Linke.
Here's some text from the designer:
By Kai Linke / 2009
“Mirror Chairs” is an edition that so far includes four different chairs. The general idea behind this session was deformation. In detail the strange new forms that occurred by using different camera effects fascinated me.
These new objects I rebuilt with monoblock chairs which I am addicted to for years anyway. The new-formed chairs get a totally different meaning and each one of them has it’s own very special identity which sometimes even appears poetic like the two chairs that seam to embrace themselves.
