Traditional Chinese Chair in Marble by Ai Weiwei
Ha and from one thing usually comes another thing: Google found me this marble reincarnation of what is actually an antique Chinese design….

“The marble chair is made from a solid piece of a stone into a chair, into something which ironically overthrew the idea of the wooden classic chair. The work as one piece is strongly against its own form, its own way of structure. In the kind of making it really dismisses its own meaning. I enjoy that part.”
