At first glance this reworked Chesterfield chair appears as though it is seen through the lens of a kaleidoscope, a mirage of fragmented angles.
The design is a fresh take on the stiff, classic, tufted armchair that goes hand in hand with leather-bound books and wafting cigar smoke. The new chair, however, is fresh, fun and full of life. Christian Fiebig replaced the traditional deep button aesthetic with origami-inspired faceted angles, and reinterpreted the original design by reconstructing it through polygon surfaces in a computer program. The digital, 2D model was then printed and rebuilt on paper. While the scale is actualized, don’t think about cozying up with a good celebrity tabloid novel just yet, the artist is currently still working on the development of a functional version.
