Chairs play an integral part of our life. From working, relaxing, watching, eating, sleeping, or talking to each other, sitting allows us to connect with buildings. Yet chairs themselves are not classified as architecture, as they are just mere players in a larger architectural scene. In an elaborate exploration of the disconnect that exists between us and architecture itself, an assembly team from E/B Office has built what is known as SEAT, an architectural feat composed of approximately 400 simple wooden chairs stacked in the form of a sine wave that is drawn into a vortex rising from the ground. At the base of this vortex, the chairs turn inward to create an intimate space for people to converse while acknowledging the immediate upward flow of chairs. These chairs were assembled through a “corbelling” process, in which chairs were attached sequentially beginning at the edges and corners working towards the center. The chairs are connected to each other by simple lag bolts, clamps, and screws hidden from view. The structure as a whole is able to maintain stability through static equilibrium, with each of the chairs providing support towards the others. When viewed as a whole, the structure is simply amazing.
