K Chair by Reynold Rodriguez

About the Item

The K chair from, Reynold Rodriguez in hand-carved from hurricane felled almendro wood. The charred finish symbolises the grace exhibited by those people who'd been through a situation so imbued with gravity and suffering. Award-winning Rodriguez (b.1971), multi-disciplinary designer and artist creates furniture, interiors and special projects; his work includes handmade furniture and lighting made from plaster and salvaged wood, imbued with distinct character that is both familiar and curious at the same time. With an industrial design degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, Rodriguez has over 20 years of creative experience. He is the recipient of an I.D. Magazine Design Distinction Award and he was also a finalist in the International Design Competition in Osaka, Japan for his work in aerodynamic architecture. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Rodriguez had limited exposure to art and high design growing up. This, combined with few material choices available on the island, encouraged him to become a resourceful designer. In 2017, Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico caused an abundance of mahogany trees to fall and Rodriguez realised that these would be the perfect material from which to build furniture. His resourcefulness managed to turn disaster into collectible art that contains references to personal and political history.
