This is a vinyl stacking chair which is used in NHS waiting rooms. This object was an everyday symbol of the NHS for us, as it representative of a situation that most, if not all, members of the British public have experienced – sitting in an NHS waiting room for a GP or hospital appointment. In this space, a collection of very different people sit together. They will be of different ages, genders, sexualities, races, backgrounds and abilities. What connects them is that they are all using the same service – the NHS.
