A Study in Right Angles

Steven Holl's A-Chair

As the designer of some of the world's most celebrated and innovative buildings, including the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, the Sliced Porosity Block in Chengdu, China and Simmons Hall at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Steven Holl is an architect of uncompromising vision. New York Times architecture critic, Paul Goldberger, labels Holl’s buildings "intellectually provocative". Holl brings the same cerebral approach to his furniture designs.

Originally designed in 1980, the A-Chair is Steven Holl's first foray into furniture design. Designed to fit neatly into the corner of a room, the three-legged triangular chair is a study in right angles. The seat, made of a perfect square, rests atop an isosceles triangle base.
