Contemporary Geometric Oak Chair with Shearling - Marfa Chair by Ben & Aja Blanc

Estimated Production TimeIn Stock Now

About

Designed by Ben & Aja Blanc, the Marfa chair is made from solid rift white oak and inlaid with Australian short-cut curly shearling. The side chair can be purchased as a "right facing" or "left facing" version, with one side open and the other closed (see images). The short-cut shearling is purposely chosen for its warm density and texture and partnered with the solidity of white oak; highlighting the inherent beauty of these materials through contrary qualities. The Marfa chair pays homage to the geometric proportions of Donald Judd and surrealism of Meret Oppenheim.
