Reverse

Human history has in many cases developed in a parallel manner regardless of differences in
geography and climate. Examples of such parallel developments can be traced back to antiquity
and they are usually related to mankind’s most basic needs. Seating, being a common need
among humans, has many such examples.
CTRLZAK’s research in this project was focused on the historical chair archetypes that even
through their multiple variations maintain their original character nowadays. An interesting example
of parallel archetype design is found between the Rocchetto style European chair and the Deng
gua (Lamp hanger) Chinese chair. Both seatings have existed for centuries and were used
initially by the rich as general use chairs, ending up eventually in common people’s houses where
they can still be found nowadays.
