A chair is a not a mere chair. It involves hundreds of components, measurements, and conscious decisions. Unless you look at it with a perspective you can’t see it. To make a chair first you have to decide which item to use: wood, or plastic or steel or a mixture. Then you need to decide about the size, comfortably, design, look, usability, space, chair back, flair, coated base, PP base, placement, color, mobility, gas lift, cost, armrest, armrest type and so on. But it happens when we look at a chair we just see a chair. But the most important thing to see is what it takes to make a chair!!
