In 2018, in addition to her paper paintings, Astrid Vlasman started making paper maché chairs. A chair was occasionally made of garden wire, painter's tape and paper maché and approximately 15 cm high. In the course of time, a whole series of small chairs arose, none of which is equal. The models arise intuitively, they are recognizable models but also fantasy chairs. During the drying process, the chair skews and gets its own character. They become clumsy, bumbling objects that together form a strong army of chairs.
The project is still going on. New ones become part of the group. The seats are not sold separately but can be adopted. After payment, the person taking care of a chair receives a nameplate under the seat, a photo with the chair and regular updates about the location of the chair in new installations
