If you're going to be contemplating superb artistic creations it stands to reason that you should be doing so from a comfortable and elegant vantage point. Enter Nendo's Mimicry Chairs.

Japanese design studio Nendo have created a basic yet classic installation for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Mimicry Chairs is made up of a series of pressed and punched metal chairs that are painted white.

The chairs are set up in ten various spaces including corridors, staircases and galleries starting in the Grand Entrance of the museum. Strategically placed, the chairs mimic the space it inhabits as well as the objects around them.

Mimicry Chairs create an atmosphere dedicated to appraising the museum and all the grandeur on display in various designs.

Mimicry Chairs will be inaugurated in the Victoria and Albert Museum during the London Design Festival, which runs until 23 September 2012.
