Charity: Natuurmonumenten

Tiddo de Ruiter (1971)
Charity: Natuurmonumenten

The original, wooden prayer stool – with space for a small religious book in the back – has been transformed into a comfortable chair. For why, the designer wondered, should a churchgoer have to sit through divine service so strictly and erectly? With only a few simple changes, the churchgoer can now listen to the sermon comfortably. The chair is flanked by a diptych portraying the chair’s past and present wonderfully. De Ruiter calls for attention to Natuurmonumenten. Because in times of austerity, the conservation of nature is severely affected.
