These Stitch and Wooly chairs by Susanne Westphal are her final graduate project from the University of Art and Design Burg Gibiechenstein. She asked the question “Why do we have less time then ever before, although we invented time saving things?”

The unfinished chairs are a reminder that we need to take time with things so each chair gets completed by the user. Using wool, one can stitch and upholster the chairs, and the more time that is spent on them, the more comfortable and attractive they are. By taking your time constructing the chairs, they teach you to slow down, relax, and unwind.
