Dohui: the Un-Chair Chair
With her Dohui Chair, designer Dohui Kim asks the pervasive sociological question: “What if you could ‘un-chair’ yourself.”
It’s a deconstructive gesture in which we’re prompted to consider the shapes of chair-less bodies as the litmus for what a truly congenial chair should be.
The answer according to Kim is Dohui, seating that resembles us anatomically, and in so doing not only offers bodily comfort but emotional solace too: “People get attached to their resemblance to shapes… Dohui makes us feel friendly and affectionate in a similar way to me.”
The comfortable posture is matched by comforting colors: an earthy orange, biophilic green, and calming blue.
