Charlotte Kingsnorth

Charlotte Kingsnorth's chairs explore bodies, sexuality and furniture. Upholstered fleshy forms are draped over austere wooden chairs like someone has left a bit of themselves behind, still sitting almost like you could divide yourself into the bit that wanted or needed to get up and get things done, and the bit that wanted to just relax and stay seated or reclined.
"I am interested in imperfection as a human trait and how it can actually increase rather than decrease the value of a product." Charlotte Kingsworth
Charlotte Kingsnorth graduated from Buckinghamshire University in 2009 with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Furniture and Product Design, however her work is extremely conceptual, often sculptural or like installation pieces and they certainly question our interaction with furniture.
