On Monday and Tuesday, the chair is seen in a restaurant environment. On Wednesday and Thursday, it lines up to provide seating for a concert hall. On Friday and Saturday, the store turns into a coworking space.

The installation is created by the Helsinki based design agency Juslin-Maunula, who has created an exhibition structure made of environmentally friendly domestic cardboard and 100% recycled felt.

Juslin-Maunula also specified the Atelier Chairs in special colours for the occasion, all of which are available to be purchased after the run of the exhibition.
