Sedia Seduta

A big black heavy box interrupted by two dynamically yellow rectangular planes, which construct the back and the seat, supported by two thin steel legs. On the one hand this basic chair construction recalls the cubic shape of the Glass Chair made eight years previously, and on the other hand Sedia Seduta seems to represent the diametric opposition of the Glass Chair. It is visually stunning, weighty and humorous.

The chair reflects sources of inspiration Kuramata's drew from his time in Memphis and working alongside Donald Judd.
