Maker's statement

This stool was part of a collection called "furniture as pictograms" (first time exhibited at the RCA degree show 1995). An attempt to visualise 'seat' and sitting surface in a very clear way. Cartoon, architype and toy-like were key words. Still leaving space for the user to have associations.

Ineke Hans, 30 June 1997
