A sitter rarely considers the nature of the object on which he rests, which makes a piece like the 1+8x2= Chair an unusual item for the way that it invites the user's examination. Its very form, composed of parts cut and folded from a single piece of material is bound to intrigue in the way that most typical task chairs could never dream to.

Designed by Tim Vinke, this perch plays with a two-dimensional structure arranged in three dimensions. From the front, one can appreciate the thin quality of the frame through the seat, the angular legs and the pleated armrests. The 1+8x2= Chair is visibly the result of careful measuring in a way that few other seats suggests. Stats for Mathematical Sitting Moveables Trending: Older & Chilly
