The chair design was created from a body in motion. It mattered when force was given on mass, as opposed to potential energy, when energy laid latent in mass. The evidence of what was possible when both potential and kinetic energy occupied the same space was the contemporary chair.

Combining a fine-art cast bronze sculpture base with a hand-shaped, curved silhouette, this chair was an art that albeit of the truly interactive variety.
