The Holy Ghost Chair

German red dot design concept award

2021-10-10

What does Holy Ghost look like? Nobody knows for sure. But you feel he’s there all the time. Whenever it is mentioned, Holy Ghost is somehow associated with intelligence and mental power; in the doctrine of Christianity, Holy Ghost stands for love. The light of Holy Ghost bathes us in gratitude and love; he’s not an object to experience, but the medium for us to feel alive. When we are touched through Holy Ghost, we perceive the transcendence and presence of deity, which enables us to get to know him and feel him. Chen Yi and Zhang Muchen, the designers, were inspired by their religious belief and mental experience as Christians in conceptualizing The Holy Ghost Chair. We are always grateful. The glow of the Holy Ghost falls like fine rain; the sacred and ethereal profile of the chair generates an atmosphere of tragic beauty, provoking infinite reverie in us about deity and spirit. Brightly polished tubes of different lengths and rhythms are used as props to produce rain-like beams, which makes the thin chair “drift in air”. As for colors, a sharp contrast between vision-impacting red and illuminant white, respectively representing blood and holy light, betrays our stereotype of chair and fuels our multidimensional imagination about the abstract and symbolic piece of art while animates the chair with a “soul”. It’s a symbol of spirit designed for the theme of Christianity, invisible, beyond touch, but may be perceived.
