Royal College of Art graduate Ben Wilson this week launches Chairfix, a flat-pack, graffiti-inspired chair. The product is constructed from a flat plywood panel, ‘reminiscent of airfix models’, Wilson says. The parts fit together without any glue or fixings to become a chair, stool or bench, depending on the design. Wilson approached ten artists to customise the plywood panels, including Matt Nailor, Peter Fowler, Richard McCray, Tom Messenger and Will Barras (front and back of flatpack pictured centre). Chairfix will be on show at the Aram store, Drury Lane, London WC2 until 23 October, as part of its Experimental or New Work Gallery. The show will be curated by Daniel Charny.
