Japan-based designer Akio Hayakawa has come up with a new way for us to experience an everyday action through Portrait in Chair. The creative way the chair is shifted alters our practical contact with an everyday object. Interesting to ponder how the slight shift here, in the chair, could shift our perception and perhaps day. Simply viewing it is enough to make me smile with pleasure at the creative potential all around us. For me, it underscores the need to stop, re-imagine and bring new life to the mundane.
