The Hidden chair

The Hidden chair is a 100% clear plexiglass chair that is occupying the context of the exhibition place in the quilt museum in Lincoln NE. The inspiration of making the chair clear comes down to the aim of making it hidden aesthetically. The Hidden chair is design to be an important asset in the exhibition experience hence it shouldn’t be distracting or taking away the emphasis from the exhibited works. The simple 3-elements design was adopted for the ease of assembly and mass production. The side prole brings up the metaphor of stitching while the single bent surface that forms the seat refers back to the single cloth of the quilts. The seating in the exhibition gives an enhanced museum experience which makes the contemplation.
