Wrong Chairs by Norman Kelley

Norman Kelley has taken the iconic American Windsor chair and made it wrong.
What is great about this project is the pushing of an accepted form, stretching  its potential playing with self imposed rules of  what is right.
In its way this is a realisation of what sketchbooks are for, taking an accepted immovable concept of what 'is' and pushing it and playing with it to come up with a variety of different solutions and realities.

"The American Windsor offered . . . vintage status and typological range. Next came the sleight of hand, or the ability to have the ordinary do something extraordinary through anamorphosis, forced perspective, or near-symmetry." Norman Kelly
