Giddy Up See-Saw Bench Sculpture with Bronze Heart Handles by Vivian Carbonell



Giddy-up see saw by Vivian Carbonell of Carbonell design, a sculpture-trained furniture designer, handcrafted a functioning seesaw, the highlight of ten pieces on view. A chunky slab of Douglas fir timber balances on a dark blue metal pivot and is detailed with naturally patinaed, cast bronze, heart-shaped handles. Formed and scaled as replicas of the internal organ, not the ideographic symbol, the hearts are cool yet heavy and full, the tactile sensation is reminiscent of holding a commemoration plaque or medallion. Once activated, the movement of this lavish play structure echoes the push and pull between materials. The raw metal and wood in contrast with the gleaming polished bronze reinforces the narrative focus on precarious equilibrium, love and life, give and take. -Excerpt the Forum design Miami by Clair Breukel.
