his project is a conceptual take on the Ikea Promise of a stable and picture-perfect living spaces. The IVAR chair is symbolic for its robustness, basic and compact form, and discomfort. It is an example of the trade-off that favors stability and ease of assembly over character and aesthetics.
This concept is starting off the work of Gordon Matta Clark and his use of deformation of architecture as means to unleash its potentials and expand it beyond walls and built enclosures.
This project is also influenced by the early works of Zaha Hadid, where volumes and shapes were sometimes described as a snapshot of an explosion in a fraction of a second: the energy of the buildings are evident in their attempt to break off the stability of their built form.
Therefore, this project puts the IVAR chair in an unstable position, a moment of a suspended animation as it attempts to break out of its robust form, a snapshot of a split second of the chair falling apart yet somehow maintaining vertical composure and stability.
This is the the IVAR as it seizes to be a chair, it is a pure state of deconstruction of the form
