The woven wool seat back of Alexandra Kehayoglu and Maxi Ciovich’s ‘Winter Passing’ chair appears to spill over the bottom edge of the chair to form a rug.

“In an attempt to mock that line that sometimes lies between art and design we found ourselves with the possibility of creating a new way.” says Kehayoglu & Ciovich. “We discovered that design can act as a tool for art. In this case: a frame in which a textile piece lies along. Working on it, we discoverd that that line could be crossed back and forward without risking the real value of the piece. This is a chair that can be used. It offers an experience. Almost like a performance, the spectator can situate himself either inside or outside. One has the possibility of submerging into the chair’s landscape, or that of remaining outside.”

The chair is made of strips of turned cherry wood. Three arc-shaped parts intersect to yield two triangles that provide lateral rigidity. “The details were resolved with simple lines that complement the general austerity of the object. The angle offered by the interaction of the strips was chosen to provide a rest position, similar than that of a traditional beach chair.”
