A chair to use together with a person one dares to have intense eye-contact and physical proximity.


TÊTÊ-À-TÊTÊ //
This chair is about connecting people. It only works, if two people use it together, otherwise it will tilt. One person has to trust the other to sit relaxed. The two seats are close to each other and pull you into an intense intimacy. The proximity of the seated individuals result in either a strong bonding or an awkward moment.
If used by already deeply connected people the owner will always associate the chair with this time spent together and that leads to an increase of value.
It is made of steel and stained plywood and derived from a broad exploration about increasing the value of products.
