Chair from the "chair" (concept project)

Very often, designers create their projects based on existing ones. And the truth is not in vain that the proverb says: everything new is well forgotten old. And there is nothing wrong with using old, already forgotten ideas.

How do we find out on the site Culturology.ru, probably many have heard about the project of the American Joseph Kosuth, named "One and Three Chairs." The work, created back in 1965, contained three objects - a chair, a photograph of a chair and a dictionary definition of what a chair is. The work is considered one of the first examples of conceptual art, which almost everyone knows today. Designer Eric Ku says that he was inspired by this idea, and it was on its basis that he created his own project. Using the alphabet, namely the word 'chair' in English, he created this piece of furniture.

As we can see, the letter A serves as the back, R and H are designed to be legs. On the letter C we have our fifth point, and the letter I connects two legs together. I believe that this is nothing more than an example of conceptual art, because the chair has no special practical significance. This is not to say that it is soft, comfortable or any special. But the project has an idea, supported by certain facts. Namely, many projects are valued for the idea, and here it is such that the chair is made of a “chair”, from this word.
