CHAIRS BEING FUNNY
A typical studio setting, four sets. A living room, a bedroom, a kitchen and a bar. That's about all a sitcom needs, with the addition of an audience or some canned laughter and a handful of actors, of course. But what if the actors were to disappear into the set? If the chairs made all the jokes, the designed domesticity came to life. What is the true nature, the essence of things? How inanimate are they really, our interiors? And, perhaps even more importantly: does design have a good sense of humour?
