Skeletal Seat Redesigns
The Recession Chair by Tjep Comments on the World's Economic Crisis

The Recession Chair by Tjep is a furniture piece that comments on the world’s current economic crisis. Created by the Dutch design studio, this sleek seater is a visual representation of the recession.

Using a mass-produced IKEA chair as its basis, the Tjep team carved away the seat’s structure, ending up with a final result that is weak in strength and raw in its texture. Debuting at Dutch Design Week, this impactful and socially conscious design aims to raise awareness about our impending economic crisis and its effect on the design world.

The Recession Chair by Tjep explores the idea of receding design and presents its public with a final product that is not functional or sturdy but instead merely a representation of the decrease of quality materials and craftsmanship often seen in modern design pieces.
