Deformation by Kristrún Thors

Fashion is nothing without a body. Each body has its own way of shaping clothes. Kristrun Thors has taken this one step further, designing a ‘fashionable’ chair that, like a piece of clothing, is shaped by the person sitting in it. In addition, the flexible covering will change colour, which makes each chair look differently, depending on the user. Deformation will do well in public spaces where there is room for several of these chairs. When every chair is taken, the effect will be that of a fashion show, with each chair taking on its own look.
