SKEWED Chair | Arnold Austria x Detalle

The SKEWED Chair is one of the chair designs I did back in 2008.

My friend Mady Beldia of Detalle Furniture, helped construct the first prototype. Although this design exercise is not meant to address any practical or comfort needs, a slight adjustment in its backrest and seat-dimension will allow this piece to be used as a normal chair.

The skewed appearance only becomes obvious at certain angles or if placed side by side with other normal chairs. Taking photographs can also be quite tricky because the angles appear normal and congruent to the perspective angles.
