Arm-chair is a minimal chair designed by Australia-based architect Oliver Arbes du Puy. The piece was produced for National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Melbourne Design Week 2021 We want leisure time but feel we can’t totally relax. Through the experience of Arm-chair, a tension is created between work and leisure; rest and movement; balance and folly. One arm is resting, the other always ready to go. Sit back and relax, but not too much.
