Panton Chair Sliced by Chriss Bosse

After – or even while – Rem D. Koolhaas had 3D scanned it and morphed it into United Nude’s Lo Res chair, Chris Bosse now has sliced up the 1967 Panton Chair as part of the Re-loved: designer stories exhibition at the Sydney Powerhouse Museum that runs from 31 July – 30 September 2010 during the Sidney Design Festival.

Bosse, director of architectural firm LAVA, is one of several designers commissioned by the Powerhouse to use a pre-loved chair to tell a story about a piece of furniture they love.

“We’ve chosen to represent this shape as slices, similar to an MRI scan in order to make visible its complex 3dimensional geometry. The chair is metaphorically and physically carved out of a sliced box, ” says Bosse.
