A Chair with Hidden Meanings

More than “just” an armchair, the Connesso chair is “a polished reflection of an unclean history.” Designed by recent design graduate, Caroline Eriksson, this armchair is about the layers and hidden information a single object can contain.


With its monochromatic exterior and bold, architectural lines, Connesso gives nod to the hidden history of Le Corbusier and the ideals of a modern city. Bold, asymmetric shapes stand on jagged legs that seem incomplete. Instead of being just a chair, it is not meant to be fully comprehended by the user, rather meant to symbolize the overall design process.
