A research and book about social and cultural differences analysed through chairs and communal sittings.


Combining a travel passion and product design background CCC will study the ritual of gathering and getting together, portraying the people and the furniture they use in 8 different countries. It’s an exploration that lies between social and technical aspects of furniture. Establishing a triangle between CCC, the artisans and a local design/architect studio, they will produce a chair in each country together with the local studio,showing a physical portfolio of chairs that expresses the cultural
differences analysed during the project.
At the end of the research stage, CCC will collaborate with a graphic design studio to print a 300 pages book with visual descriptions of diverse cultures and furniture, as well as an online open source web with collaborative research on designs and artisans. The whole research will be the starting point of an itinerant exhibition.
