wirth chair

Wirth is a German word for head of family, master of household, provider. The Wirth Chair belongs in a quiet, light filled space – a foyer, piano room, gallery or perhaps even the patio. With its delicate curves and stone like look, the seat is a place for finding balance, a place for contemplation. When it’s time to retreat, as the family head or otherwise, the Wirth Chair is the only company you need.

I say ‘chair’ but I speak of every object in the room.
I speak of the table,
I speak of the bed
I speak of books
I speak of you.

Above: I spotted this arrangement uptown. The cane webbing caught my eye. I drew closer and found that the chair had sustained some injuries over time. Still (with slight adaptations), it functions.

“Designs don’t have to be perfect: results that are not quite optimum or less than perfect are often completely satisfactory for everyday usage. No everyday product is perfect, nor need they be.”
