Originally, the chair was closer to a tool to show social status than to sit for relaxing. The arms of the chair have served as an indication of one’s social rank.
This is still understood unconsciously even in modern times as well. Most chairs used by powerful usually have armrests. As the number of armchairs increases, the communication between people gradually diminishes.
The 1.5 Chair is designed for you to spend time sitting with other people by losing the armrest on one side and adding an extra seat.
'Decimal Point' Project'
I think objects exist in digital way while people use the objects in analogue ways of thinking. The objects are generally understood and counted as natural numbers like 1 or 2 depending on the number of them. On the other hand, people unconsciously use the object in the analogue way, not in the way of natural number known as perfect number. When they are given objects consisting of decimal places, Only then can people use the objects in analogue ways, which enables people to experience the most natural and unprecedented usability of them. In addition, this experimental research is expected to be a good case study for a real issue like a less communication of people or an oversupply in the market. Finally, this project I believe aligns the way for objects to exist and people’s viewpoint on the objects by including dec- imal places into the rela- tionship between people and objects.
