Studio Makkink & Bey create a chair that is also a room

  • Comment

The wings of the Ear Chair extend outwards to acoustically and visually insulate the user, providing personal space in a crowded room

A group of Ear Chairs facing each other will create a place for private conversation. It is one of two collections Rotterdam-based Studio Makkink & Bey have created for the Dutch firm Prooff, on show at the Milan Furniture Show.

Their Work Sofa is a collection based on modular components, five units that can be rearranged to suit the user or the location. Also on show is the designer’s Slow Car, as the name suggests a vehicle that promotes the virtues of travelling slowly. Past work by Studio Makkink & Bey has been exhibited at the Pompidou in Paris and London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.
