[....] By Royal Appointment is a set of responsive chairs. As a person sits in the chair, an RGB colour sensor in the back reads the colour of their clothing. The colour LEDs on the back of the chair then gradually fade into the colour of the sitter. “This gives the individual sitting on it their own halo of light, or personal aura, evoking images of religious icons and kings”. Here are my photos.
“The shape of the chairs evoke the design of medieval thrones. The holes in the back of the chair gradually increase in size, making the chair at once solid yet insubstantial, as though it might be dissolving into the air. Strange and surreal, witty yet also spiritual, this is one of Waldemeyer's most arresting projects yet”.
