Jason Griffiths is an architect and assistant professor at Arizona State University. His recent chair installations, located at S College & La Jolla off Southern Ave in Tempe were funded by the Tempe Neighborhood Grant Program, which seeks to “[support] efforts to improve and enhance community spaces and cultivates opportunities for neighbors to commission artwork and other improvements.” In a Jackalope Ranch article he explains that,

“[the] eventual form was derived from looking at how two people might sit together and their relationship — one leaning on the other, facing slightly away from each other and so on. These relationships were also informed by the immediate environment like views towards the street, local bus route, shade, etc.”
