Liberated Chair

Identification with a brown, wooden, four-legged object with a straight back removes the human mind from knowing the pure essence of a chair.

“The object we sit on” is wrong, or, at least, not right. We can stand on a chair, for example, to change the lamp. And we can sit on many things – on a table, on the stairs, on a stone, on a bench, even on our parents’ laps. But in order not to stray from the essence of the chair, we must realize that the chair is a non-living, inanimate material designed and produced for people to sit on it.

The chair is also politicized, again lifeless, but in this case without the opportunity to sit on.

They get rid of the first type of chairs, and the second one must be kept.
