Reinventing the traditional craft of upholstery, Second Sitters brings together a new generation of contemporary upholsterers, their skills, methods and materials used rooted in upholstery tradition. Second Sitters presents an upholstery installation workshop. A sensory discovery of the skills, techniques and materials of the upholsterer. Evolving over the duration of Tent a single live collaborative piece will be upholstered by a different second sitter everyday. Each bringing their own contemporary take on the traditional craft. Launching at Tent! ’20 Centimes’. ‘20 centimes’ is a travelling piece expanding over time, accumulating/collecting our memories, bulging with our secrets.
