purchase from the designers, 2016
For more than 20 years, Sofie Lachaert and Luc d’Hanis have been creating furniture, objects and installations that start out from everyday objects. They work as an autonomous designer duo on the border between applied and contemporary art. They create their designs spontaneously as unique pieces or in limited editions, outside the industry. ‘Design art’ and autonomous design originated in the second half of the twentieth century. They have a critical and artistic character. Objects are generally not commissioned, but come into existence autonomously, initiated by the designers themselves. With Crossed Legs, atelier lachaert dhanis draws our attention to an object that is generally invisible in everyday life. By merging two archetypical wooden chairs into a whole, a new perspective emerges on the beauty, precision and social interaction that a chair brings about.
