The Freelancer chair was designed to be a part of an art project called BODIES AT WORK by artist Maja Bekan and curator Angela Serino in 2013. During a few months, the artists set up a workspace at IFP in Beijing, and invited ‘art workers’: freelancing designers, architects, artists, curators, writers, actors etc to come and use the office for free. The project also included a research group discussing topics related to the concept ‘work’.
The chair is designed to be as comfortable as an office chair but to look and feel like a chair for domestic use. I made three versions, each with different proportions and in a different colour, chosen to match the pink walls in the office.
Freelancer is since 2015 produced and sold by ZaoZuo in two versions, Freelancer and Freelancer Pro.
