Furniture Crush: Inception Chair by Vivian Chiu
We have a furniture crush on Vivian Chiu’s Inception Chair. She took the chair archetype and placed within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2” wide to 1/8” wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease.
We love how the Inception Chair is a chair within a chair within a chair, and so on until no more chairs will fit inside. So creative and fun. For more on the Inception Chair and Chiu’s designs visit her on the web.
