POKE

Knowledge you cannot just learn from a book is hidden in the interactions between you and others. If the person is a stranger you may gain access to a story that would otherwise have passed unnoticed. In an individualistic society we can sometimes forget that we are many living here together. The chair Poke is thought as a playful way of reminding us of one another’s existence. It seeks to enable unexpected encounters in the public space that otherwise never would have happened.
