Analogue bug-fix

There are seminar chairs, abandoned in rooms and offices all over Chelsea College of Art and Design, they have a bug. When stacked, the sharp bottom edge of the front top-rail eventually cuts through the seat webbing, the seats sag, they became uncomfortable, unsafe, and eventually unused.

We decided to fix the bug. A flash mob convened, and we hacked the chairs with upcycled materials.

Working with David Cross and Charlotte Webb, we found skipped sweet pea canes and wove them into the extant seat webbing to make a chaise longue.
