Chair by Its Cover – Ron Arad

Why design a chair when so many already exist? One of these chairs asks as much with its mysterious inscription “Why bark if you can have a dog?” This pair is a monument to the readymade: two unassuming chairs enrobed in gleaming, mirror-polished steel, thus transformed into something massive and powerful. But the second chair, inscribed “Why have a dog if you can bark yourself?” suggests a further thought: Who really needs new chairs after all?
