A RESPITE AT SOME POINT ASAP - a chair designed by Sébastien de Ganay in collaboration with Lawrence Weiner 2015

Originally designed to bring rest to UNTITLED. art fair 2015, this chair has been commissioned by Christophe Boutin and Mélanie Scarciglia and designed by Sébastien de Ganay in collaboration with Lawrence Weiner.

The goal was to produce a lounge chair that could be produced anywhere: cut four pieces out of simple plywood on a local CNC machine - in order to make its carbon trace as low as possible - and assemble it in a minute with no screws, or glue.
Sébastien de Ganay and his studio designed the 4 PIECE CHAIR and Lawrence Weiner adorned it with one of his inimitable phrases with a composition from his ASAP series.
