The Peter Reyner Banham Exhibition hosted by the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning presents seven dining chairs by Thomas Kelley. Adapted from John Kassay’s drawings of 18th- and 19th-century Windsor chairs, the built set examines a medley of design what-not-to-do’s. Wrong Chairs pushes the visuality of illusions beyond basic trompe líoeil styling and toward a projective form of vision, or cunning sight, that embraces visual error as both intuition and method.
