Confider is the result of a dialectical encounter between two elements. : one is furniture, the second architecture. The wall, a quintessential barrier, is deformed into a piece of 19th century furniture. The Confident (confider) is an S-shaped bench, also called “vis-à-vis” which allows two people to chat while sitting face to face. However, in this work, each elements confronts the other. The curved wall turned into a chair contradicts it’s usual stiffness and its separating purpose. Then again, its height does not allow the two people sitting down to see one another.
