At first the 3/4 Place Keeper Chair looks like an illustration. Or a chair that has been illustrated on top of. In actuality, it does not sport any drawings or sketches whatsoever. Instead, what appear like drawn-in lines are wires sticking haphazardly from the clean silhouette of the wooden seat they stem from. Intriguingly, it is these fragmented wires that make up the whole chair in the first place.
Designed by Julian Sterz, the 3/4 Place Keeper Chair sports four different wire frames, each of which are connected to a portion of the original wooden seat. When together, the illusion that a whole seat exists is perpetuated. Nevertheless, they are meant to be taken apart to offer pieces of the chair to others. Of course, this wouldn't result in the most comfortable perch.
