Recession Chair

Interested in exploring the visual impact of our recent economic crisis in relation to a design object, Dutch design studio Tjep. took an Ikea mass produced chair and started sanding it to the finest possible version. The result is a process where the chair goes from normal, to diminished, to skeleton like. The resulting object is barely functional as it most likely won't withstand the weight of the person it's trying to support, much like a society plagued by recession.
