"Root" by Clara Kim

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Clara Kim designed and crafted "Root" with an awareness of space. Drawing inspiration from the roots of plants, she built a chair that embodied personal space. When unoccupied, the chair itself claims space; however, when sitting in it, the chair’s claimed space becomes your own.

Clara Kim is a Korean American sculptor currently based out of Chicago. Kim's current practice creates interactive sculpture where the level of interaction is determined by the viewer. The relationship between the viewer and object is one which is very important for Kim. Her work explores ideas of personal space in relation to household objects. Kim received her BFA in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The prototype of this piece was briefly displayed in 2017 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received accolades from critics and admirers from around the country.

The chair is constructed in two pieces to make shipping and moving into standard doorways easily manageable.
