“Of course: an interior constitutes a comfort zone. But when we zoom in closer on this interior, we can see how thighs are shifting on seats, how hands are caressing arms, how people snuggle up against the back of their chairs and how their feet curl around the legs. It is obvious: sitting is a physical pleasure: sitting is intimate. Could sitting even be driven by desire? And: what is the chair’s role in all of this?” – Lucas Maassen

‘The Chair Affair’ is a photographic series that match-makes chairs, reminiscent of couples caught in compromising positions. Conceived by designer Lucas Maassen and visual artist Margriet Craens, this playfully cheeky project is slightly autobiographical in nature, given the collaborators are also partners in real life.

Appealing to our enormous love for beautifully designed chairs and art that doesn’t take itself too seriously, we love the personalities the chairs take on in their odd coupling and naughty positioning. Furniture in love – we’re into it!
