London designers Tom Dixon and Es Devlin and provocateur Max Siedentopf are among 19 makers and artists who have reimagined a simple wooden chair as part of the 19 Chairs charity project.
Organized by London designers Tom and Will Butterfield, the project began during the coronavirus lockdown last spring when the two brothers created 19 different versions of the "gloriously common furniture piece" using only 27-by 27-millimeter square section timber and wood screws.
In phase two of the project, these chairs were sent off to be adapted by creatives from different disciplines around the world, with each receiving a different seat. The resulting designs will be auctioned off to raise money for Age UK, a charity dedicated to helping the elderly.
