The ear flap chair is often set in the context of heavy upholstery furniture. This type of chair, aims to create a safe and undisturbed space in the space of the user. In this project, work has been done to create a light and open construction that preserves the good and safe qualities of the ear flap chair. The frame of the chair is designed so that the user is lifted away from the cold metal construction. In this way, the user’s body is only in contact with the chair’s hot materials -hearing flagline and oil treated ash.
Some people seem not to believe you can sit in the chair. Therefor I add Astrid herself seated in the very chair:
is a British artist working in a diverse range of disciplines, from sculpture to furniture and fashion.
Her works have been acquired for the permanent collections of institutions worldwide, including Philadelphia Museum of Art, Dallas Museum of Art, High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Corning Museum of Glass in New York, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and the Fabergé Museum in St Petersburg.
Faye has been exhibited at Phillips de Pury and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Triennale in Milan, and D Museum in Seoul.
She is represented by Friedman Benda in New York.

Saul Steinberg was born in Romania and studied in Bucharest and Milan. Architecture was among his studies. He specialized in Photo-drawings hybrids. These hybrid photo-drawings come in two forms: photographs (and occasionally old engravings) whose original subjects—furniture, appliances, street excavations, crumbled paper—take on new identities through the addition of drawn lines; and drawings on furniture, objects, sidewalks, or buildings, which were then photographed to record their new mutations.
Steinberg created the first of these photoworks for the short-lived magazine Flair, where they appeared as inset booklets in two issues.
