NAKED CHAISE LOUNGE
For having a moment with one’s own thoughts
The chaise lounge implies its naked presence in various ways: unaltered marks from the fabrication process, ignorance of the material imperfection, and most distinctively, the use of upholstery that hints at both the tone and texture of nudity. Even so, the furniture unearths the feeling of nakedness while being used. The position of lying down binds the sense of vulnerability and exposure, echoing the memory in a dentist’s chair with a mouth open, or having a moment with one’s own thoughts – isn’t that nakedness in front of the self?
