Covid-19 chair. Made from recycled/repossessed materials it represents the Coronavirus pandemic and the impact it has had on all of our lives. The fabric is made from disposable face masks and deep-buttoned in a way that makes them look like they would on a persons face. every other button is a Corona Extra bottle cap, not only is the name association darkly comical but this is also a reference to the increase of at-home alcohol consumption as a result of the lockdown. The spine on the back of the chair is a feature that is designed to shock and draw attention to the piece, it has an almost morbid nature that raises awareness of the severity of the situation. The spine is also the central support system of the body, it served as a symbol that represented the importance of emotional and physical support systems everywhere during the pandemic, this ranges from the NHS to the support of friends and family.
