This chair raised on blocks aims to tackle the “stupidity of the unawareness of the upcoming disaster” of climate change for countries where water levels could threaten everyday life.
Created by Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Boris Maas, The Urge To Sit Dry is a smoked-oak chair based on archetypal designs, raised on blocks of lighter European oak.
The blocks lift the chair to the height it would need to be to sit above the sea level in different scenarios.
The design of the chair means it can be easily adapted to reflect the levels of different places and also to show the impact of a potential rise in sea levels due to global warming.
