How to make a usual chair interesting and eye-catching? Make it slipping! Snarkitecture has designed a chair for Portuguese brand UVA that features a wooden frame that is seemingly slipping onto its side or sinking into the ground.
Snarkitecture designed the Slip chair to appear unusable, giving it a wonky structure topped with a marble seat. The frame is built from white ash wood, and to counteract its leaning frame, the piece of stone forming the seat was sliced at an angle – evening out its surface.
The apparently opposed elements of the chair are counterbalanced through the monolithic volume of the stone. The chair revolves upon two axes and the suggested unsteadiness of the sliding forms conceals the complete stability of Slip. Each chair, crafted in the artisans’ workshops, is numbered and certified as a totally handmade item. While the first iteration of the chair is made from white ash and black marble, the brand plans to release different versions using a range of materials but even made of these ones, this chair will be a nice fit and even a showstopper for any modern space. Enjoy!
