The chair was made in San Francisco between 2000 and 2002. I was impressed by the scale and grids of the streets and buildings in the large American cities. I tried to relate to their scale and to search for a human space there. I developed the chair's form out of a model of a seated human, and transformed that impression into a computer model. The computer made it into a series of raised sticks. Each stick was cut by hand and glued together one by one.
