Peer is a reinterpretation of a traditional 2 position library chair. From a seated position the chair rocks forward into a more active position. From these 2 states, a compelling form geometry emerges, reinforced by observing positive and negative spaces in architecture, especially modern libraries and museums which are spaces these chairs are intended for. The form is crisp and lightweight. The negative space created by the frame implies that the chair is penetrating the ground. The heritage of the traditional chair can be felt through the hardwood in a thoroughly modern form.
