We are constantly taking a seat, on our own or with others. Our sitting positions are closely linked to our everyday life – we are asked to take a seat, we sit at the kitchen table, we sit next to each other, together and finally outside again.
Through material, form and place, we are connected to the object of the chair both physically and mentally. Whether for comfort, purpose or routine, we occupy a place, a position in everyday life and with each other. Chairs thereby form patterns for encounters, set distances and frames, create closeness and belonging, influence our sensations and behaviour.
