In observing a typical seating object, one can usually discern a collection of separate components that have all been fixed together with hardware. The Origami Chair by Vasiliy Butenko does not conform to this conventional composition and rather arrives at the standard silhouette in an unexpected way.
My guess would be that the inner structure of the seat is assembled with several distinct constituents, yet the impression from the exterior of the piece suggests one single skin of leathery material. The furnishing distorts itself after bending into the form of an angular stool, undergoing a sharp turn to mold the shape of the rear chair legs and the backrest. The Origami Chair by Vasiliy Butenko hence becomes an unusually enchanting object.
