Catalogue Note

`With the A.Y.O.R. (At Your Own Risk) chair, the weighted hollow volume makes the piece tip forward so it is hardly recognisable as a chair - it only becomes a chair when you sit on it, and even then, it feels like it shouldn't support your weight.  But, magically, it does!' Matthew Collings
