Charity: Warchild

Richard Hutten (1967)
Charity: Warchild

He took two Casala chairs from the seventies and merged them together like Siamese twins, sharing one leg. The chair is based on the ‘Thing’ series from the nineties – a series in which Hutten composed chairs from a variety of seats and legs. The fragile layer of silver foil gives the chair a surrealistic air while at the same time referring to Andy Warhol’s ‘Silver Factory’. The twin object calls for interaction between people by forcing them to sit face to face. But remember to sit carefully! Hutten: “I think creativity is important, and I love children.” Warchild fits this, as the organisation helps children in war zones in creative – and successful – ways.
