'inception chair' is a seating concept which draws on the archetype of the chair nestling it within a progressively smaller form of itself to create the actual seat. developed by RISD furniture student vivian chiu, the design consists of 10 chair frames that fit into one another via hand-cut grooves which are cut out of the inner edges of the frames' seats and backs. pegs on the outer end of each frame fit into the notches of the previous sized chair, sliding easily in place so that the horizontal edge between chair seat and back line up.
Vivian Chu has achieved by adroitly contriving the Puzzle Chair. Actually composed of numerous small chairs ‘nestled’ within each other, it was done in a clear allusion to the concept of dreams within a dream.
Basically consisting of 10 chair frames that fit into one another via hand-cut grooves (cut out of inner edges), pegs on the outer end of each frame easily conform to the indentation of the previous smaller sized chair. And with the whole fitting mechanism, it creates a unique effect of a multi-pillared hallway from all angular visual perspectives of the chair.
The gallery is there for you to gleefully gawk at, and before you go further tumbling down the ‘rabbit hole’, let me tell you all the images of this wondrous conception are totally real.
