—01-04. "Design is always education."
While brutally cold yesterday, New York still offers plenty of interesting things to take your mind off the numbness of your fingers, and the chill in your bones. Popping into Matter for a some respite in the afternoon I was reminded once again of my admiration for Enzo Mari's Sedia 1 Chair. Sold as a kit containing the pinewood boards, nails and instructions needed to assemble the chair, it is produced by Artek and was originally part of Mari's Autoprogettazione project from 1974.
