A chair may not be able to change the world, but it can certainly bring people together. Nowhere more so than in Vietnam. Believe it or not, few chairs are as democratized as the plastic kindergarten chairs dotting every street in Vietnam. Everyone – immaculately dapper businessmen, office workers, uniformed members of the military, street vendors and young students — crouches on those blue and red plastic chairs as they tuck into bowls of ‘pho’, sip ‘tra da’ or down glasses of ‘bia hoi’ whilst watching the world go by.

There are different theories for the use of those chairs. Some people argue that they are as easy to set out as they are to be quickly hidden from the cops. It is an emblem of Vietnamese street food, a loyal companion to countless bowls of ‘pho’ and a lesson on making the most of a small living space. Sitting on a small chair allows one to see the big world.

“So back in Vietnam and all of the things I need for happiness: low plastic stool, check. Tiny little plastic table, check. Something delicious in a bowl, check,” said Anthony Bourdain.

Hanoi-based illustrator Giang Nguyen has breathed new life into the Vietnamese humble chair by combining its shapes with the Vietnamese diacritical marks and pop-art styles.
