For this special exhibition, The Future Perfect decided to answer some of these questions by issuing artists, industrial designers, ceramicists, sculptors and interior designers with a brief to create a single chair of their own imagination. The final selected works, which range from fully functional examples to pieces of pure art and sculpture, will be one-of-a-kind pieces for sale exclusively through The Future Perfect. The resulting show is ambitious and the results are vital and often surprising, much like The Future Perfect’s gallery program.
