Obstinate seating

Jurgen Bey says chairs are never used in the way they were designed to be used. His Stubborn Chair rebels against this notion.

Jurgen Bey’s Stubborn Chair for Dutch company Ngispen comprises two stackable chairs placed slightly off-centre and melted together.

Considering that it is impossible to place these kinds of chairs in neat, straight rows, Bey realised that “one never sits on a chair the way it is meant to be used: you sit on it like this, or you could sit on it like that”. A chair is never just right, thus making them stubborn.

The Stubborn Chair is available in rough, smooth and upholstered versions.
