400 Wooden Chairs Form Tremendous Undulating Wave

You won’t have to search very far for a seat when you visit this installation located in Freedom Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Created by New York design collaboration E/B Office, SEAT utilizes 400 simple wooden chairs stacked in a wavelike shape that rises and falls in an undulating pattern. Partners Yong Ju Lee and Brian Brush’s SEAT is the winning design selected as a part of this year’s Flux Project, an initiative that supports artists in creating innovative temporary public art throughout Atlanta.

The structure was built by starting from the edges and corners and working in towards the middle, connecting the chairs together with bolts, clamps, and hidden screws. E/B Office describes SEAT as a “transformation of chairs from detached useable objects into structural and spatial components of an ambiguously occupiable edifice. It's intended to be legible and readable as a collection of individual seats, but when approached, visitors realize that sitting down in any one of them amounts to a deliberate act of occupation one can't take for granted as usual; a temporary social contract to redefine their perception of sitting embodied as architecture.” Visitors can wander around the structure and take temporary respite in one of the many unoccupied chairs. In doing so, the normally instinctive process of sitting down is transformed into a very deliberate and intentional experience.
