“Growing up, I never wanted to be an office chair” is a functional artwork that reimagines the concept of seating with a blend of whimsy and sustainability. This office chair stands as a rebellion against the mundanity of traditional office furniture, infusing a playful and spirited perspective into everyday spaces. Its design aims to awaken the inherent silliness and joy within its users, inviting them to rediscover a childlike sense of fun.

Crafted in London, this unique chair is composed of materials conventionally considered waste, including timber and fabric off-cuts. By repurposing these materials, the artwork challenges pre-existing notions about the value of waste streams, promoting a newfound appreciation and perspective on sustainability.

The underlying motivation of this piece is twofold. On one hand, it seeks to instill a sense of playfulness and light-heartedness in its users. On the other, it carries a profound message about the responsibility of designers and makers towards the planet. This office chair is not just a functional item; it’s a statement on creativity, responsibility, and the transformative power of design in redefining waste as a valuable resource.

Due to the lamination of timber offcuts, each piece is truly unique and would not be possible to replicate two that are the same.
Variations in the upholstery fabric may vary.
