Thought this might be a little helpful, we hope it’s not wrong!!
And just for a little added context:
- Elizabethan: refers to Elizabeth I, who reigned from 1558 to 1603 (this is part of the Tudor era, as well)
- Baroque: an art movement that began around 1600 and lasted until the early 18th century.
- Rococo: an art movement created in a direct response to Baroque (sometimes called “Late Baroque”), which lasted from about the 1710s to around the time of the French Revolution (depending on the historian you ask).
- Georgian: refers to the rules of Georges I, II, III, and IV (1714 to 1830).
- Regency: the time when George IV ascended the throne due to his father’s mental illness. It technically lasted from 1811 to 1820, but some will use this term for all pre-Victorian 19th century.
- Victorian: Queen Victoria’s reign from 1837 to 1901 (but will sometimes be considered to start earlier due to the Reform Act of 1832)
Tokyo-based design firm YOY transforms this fantasy into a reality. Canvas, a series of three navy ink paintings of French-style chairs, makes an illusion out of its subject. The elastic fabric of the canvas hides an actual chair waiting behind the painting, inviting onlookers to take a seat and become the spatial extension of the two-dimensional print. The simplistic elegance of the work seems to embody how easy it is to add a little flourish and whimsy into the throes of the everyday.
