The chair came in front of my own camera’s lense. Hence a repeat here of the “SSstutterr” Ccchairr or Ssstoell by Dutch Interior Architect Charlotte Girod.
Willem Ontwerpt is a Dutch designer who designed this More to Less Chair in the dire 2010 economic circumstances to remind us.
Under the bulging prosperity lies a slimmed-down form, just the part that is important and supporting. The fat layer is as a cover for the frame and can be removed by loosening the ropes. The ropes symbolize our commitment to the current system of consumption and excess.

Never knew of its existence until I found it on the web.
Take a peek inside the cruel and unforgiving world of St. Louis, Missouri’s abandoned, abused and neglected chairs. Found in back alleys all over the city, these chairs live out their last days on mean streets, forsaken by their owners and forgotten by society. Until now.

I make things.
Well, I try to make things interesting by helping people understand & appreciate what’s right in front of them. I do this for work & play. I like the Web. I like bikes. I like raspberries. I like old cameras. I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day.
I live in Saint Louis, Missouri. I’m from OHIO.
I co-founded Tremendousness. It’s my main thing, now. I’m @keaggy on Twitter. I’m happily married and have two awesome, perfectly weird kids.
I was a founding partner and proto-blogger at XPLANE (~1999). Eventually ended up at Dachis Group through acquisition (2010). Before all that/mixed in with all that I was an earnest magazine designer (starting 1995), idealistic web guy (starting 1997), and grizzled photo editor (starting 2004) at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Before that I made a BMX ‘zine called ACC (aka The Atomic Circle of Chaos, 1988-1993). And before that I just drew some shit, sucked at baseball, loved The Dead Milkmen, and rode my bike on some walls.
