A chair that’s not quite there

A chair that's not quite there
There’s a reason this chair has holes in it.

Designer Tuomas Markunpoika Tolvanen was inspired by his grandmother, who has Alzheimer’s disease, and created a chair which retains the shape of a solid chair.

He made it by welding steel rings over an existing wooden chair, and then burning away the original chair with fire.
