Appearing in European cities around the 17th c, the corner chair was a space-saving seat in small, urban apartments. At a desk, it became an early swivel chair, with the sitter able to alternate among three sitting positions. As they say, a good chair is one that's not too uncomfortable in a lot of different positions. This corner chair is made of rift-sawn white oak, ebony, and brass with a rush-pattern Danish cord seat. It is a square inscribed in a circle, and the back-rest is made by the intersection of three cylinders. The God's Eye, a Mexican symbol for weaving and understanding the unknown, faces inward at the back leg connection, and the Evil Eye, an Eastern symbol of protection, gaurds the back. This chair has roots in design based on typology, history, geometry, ergonomics, and belief. It has a center just like us.
