Cut Chair by Peter Bristol


Though only one of its legs remains whole and in contact with the ground, Cut Chair by Peter Bristol is nevertheless perfectly firm and stable. Bristol pulls back the curtain (in this case, a thick shag rug) to reveal that it conceals a bulky metal plate topped with equally hefty supports. The weight of the plate, coupled with the hidden metal tube that attaches to the Chair’s leg, gives sufficient strength to hold a persons weight.
