Vision is the primary sense that is employed in architecture. The form, textures, colour, the aesthetics, are all captured through the light in the space. Light, in its raw form, paints a picture guiding the journey of the user and their well-being. Light has the power to influence our emotions, cognition and perception of a space. The effective use of light in any design can elevate its spatial experience. Light and shadows can create dynamism in a static setting. The depth perception is altered with various elements and the imaginative use of light in spaces can increase the interaction between space and its users.

Starchitect’s Chair – Architecture You Can Sit On!

Submission: July 31, 2022
Registration: June 30, 2022
Language: English
Location: Global
Prizes: Please see the details below
Type: Open

 

As long as architects have been designing buildings, they’ve also been designing the chairs that feature within them. Starchitects like Frank Gehry, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Zaha Hadid and Eero Saarinen, have all designed iconic chairs. In order to have complete control over how users experience their buildings, they have masterfully crafted chairs that complement their design language.

Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “… it is quite impossible to consider the building as one thing, its furnishings another…”. While architecture sets the scene and provides the framework, a chair can have a strong influence on a room’s character. The Barcelona Pavilion is incomplete without the Barcelona Chair and so is the Villa Savoye without the LC4 Chaise Lounge.

The Starchitect’s Chair design competition is looking for the next iconic chair.
