Reconsidering Function

Who Supports Who by Lawrence Laske

Lawrence Laske's Who Supports Who reinterprets the traditional relationship between a table and chairs. Expectations of use are expanded in Laske’s unique work; not only can the chairs be seated around the table but here they can be used as tabletop accessories for additional shelving and storage.

In 1990, Who Supports Who was included in Interior Objects: A New Decade, an exhibition at Gallery 91, New York.
