Transformation usually occurs in the stages preceding the final product—during conceptualization and making. Consisting of a tabletop, two backs and six legs, Richard Hutten’s “NY Thing” continues to morph once finished. The “NY Thing” is the corner version of the famous “Things” furniture series, starting with “Thing 1” in 1995 and continuing in 2000. Playful and absurd, it exemplifies Hutten’s “no-sign-of- design” style, where “design” is not the shape but the idea. Is it a chair, a bench or a table? Hutten once said: “I don’t solve problems, I create possibilities.” Although its function is undefined, the “NY Thing” has endless possibilities, to be discovered through use.
