The Cuentame Chair Invites the Sitter's Attention

Where a seat might simply suggest a place for sitting, the Cuentame Chair embraces a sense of occasion. The act of reposing may not be such a humdrum activity, and rather a state of reflection should be celebrated.

What makes this Manuel Camacho chair so unique is its felt-like materiality and the way that its front side fans out to form an area rug. The way that the fabric spreads is visually reminiscent to the train of a ball gown or a resplendent red carpet approach, and much more unpretentiously references a playful story-telling environment.

The "Tell Me" Cuentame Chair welcomes the eager ears of school kids in the presence of their teacher or children before a raconteur relative. The piece itself even seems to invite the sitter to utter his own tale to it.
