Description

Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design

The idea for the concept of the chair came to the artists during having lunch at the Alpemare,Versilian Coast, Italy. The inspiration came from the lava of a volcano, coming down the mountains (ALPE) and slowly moving into the seawater (MARE). The initial model was handmade from wood. For each chair the procedure of making earth moulds is repeated requiring days of work and complex anual procedures each chair is a separate fusion. Once obtained by fusion the various parts of the chair are joined by welding. Finally the chair is sanded and finished to obtain a mirrored surface. The bronze used for the chair comes from an old ships propeller.
