The art installation you’re about to see was designed by Peter Bristol, a lead product designer at Seattle-based product development consultancy Carbon Design Group. As author described it in his own words, “The Cut Chair” provides a stable place to sit, but creates an optical illusion that tells you otherwise. It usually takes few moments before people conclude how this trick works, yet the solution is pretty straight-forward. A plate concealed by a thick carpet allows a robust cantilevered seat. Three well placed leg “stumps” and the chair looks as though it has just been magically sliced apart. Peter is currently looking for a partner that would like to have the Cut Chair made for installation or production.
