Here's some text from Leenharattanarak:

--

An exploration of patterns of use and storage and how their boundaries might define furniture is at the heart of this furniture.

Technology impacts increasingly on our use of personal spaces, bringing its own detritus to our increasing confined urban spaces. The result; furniture with a personalised and idiosyncratic idiom.

Burden Chair & Burden Chair 1: Highlighting the weight we carry in everyday life by integrated symbolic storage exposing the number and identity of our possessions.

Burden Chair: 15mm. birch plywood with biscuit jointing.
