This research work began with the rise of a random event. This random incident took place in the vicinity of Lake Kerkini in Serres prefecture within a workshop, in may 2012. The theme of the workshop was to design observatories for the lake Kerkini. The discovery of a red velvet chair in the mound of the lake, an odd and puzzling finding compared with the landscape of the lake, detached from the general context, caused stimuli and questions.
Sitting on this chair and gazing at the scenery made me wonder how the viewer can inhabit a spatial organization (landscape) with the help of some spatial data (furniture). This afterwards, as a symbolic impression, ows to serve as material for performative processes and synthetic transactions. The realization that the construction-furniture grows familiar feelings in a foreign place, causing appropriation of the landscape, led to the analysis and the effort creating a mechanism. This mechanism using familiar objects, such as furniture and then reconfiguring them will contribute to the experiential habitation of a landscape. The transformed furniture works as a landmark of intimacy.
Originally, a study was carried out on the evolution of furniture both morphologically and constructionally, through time. Afterwards, this project focused on the ability of furniture, through it’s form, to bear notations, to create poetic images,-and therefore poetic living- and to create conditions for the construction of a micro-(eu)topio. A third step of this project, is the effort of inventing a «synthetic tool». In order to succeed in this target, some means were used: the scale, the landscape and generally the topophilic research, the formatting of the body action of sitting, the dipole inside-out and compact images. These means do not only involve a personal living experience but also a meeting point and point of contact with the user. And all of them can probably be achieved by the restoration of the subject's craftsman (bricoleur).
