Vladimir Tsesler’s Cross-Legged Living Chair

Sexy, yet demure; Valdimir Tseler’s Living Chair was inspired by the human form (female, of course) -  long legs delicately crossed for a provocative yet modest aesthetic. The cross-legged form creates a three-legged stool (a stable tri-pod, if you will), in feminine pink or electric red. With perfect posture, it’s at once modern and feminine, capturing the curve of a woman’s back within the backrest.

Living Chair. Designed by Vladimir Tsesler.

The Russian designer Vladimir Tsesler is best known as half of the creative duo “T&V”, (the belated Sergei Voichenko being the other half). Their artistic liaison began at the Belarusian Academy of Arts, where both designers studied. They established a reputation for their graphic design work: cool logos and ‘social posters’, with provacative allegory and grotesque irony being their trademark. While they tinkered in the design of three-dimensional objects: Mona Lisa in the shape of “matryoshka”, a typically soviet 3-liter glass can filled with “Coca-Cola”, a hand grenade “lemonade” and a toothy toothbrush, Living Chair appears to be the first foray into furniture design. Not a bad start, right? Although Sergej Voichenko passed away in 2004 and Living Chair was thus designed solely by Tseler, it is still impossible to think about the inseparable duo individually.
