A VASE FOR HUMAN 2000
If the classic cross-section of a chaise longue is rotated on its axis, the result is a shape that is similar to a vase with no bottom. A reclusive and quiet space for meditation made out of clay. Rather than a chair, it is a vessel for a human being. After use, it can be recycled by burying in sand dunes.
