Yard Sale Project, Chaise One Black, UK, 2016

Price Upon Request

About

A unique, material-driven sculptural chair by Ian Spencer and Cairn Young of Yard Sale Project, Black Tongue explores unprecedented forms in wood. The wood is finished using the shou-sugiban method, an ancient Japanese finishing technique that preserves wood by charring it with fire. In addition to being aesthetically striking and elegant, the chaise is rot, pest, weather, UV light, and fire resistant. At once inspired by and made to support the human form, the French walnut hand-carved chair evokes a sleek, curving body. The chaise’s smooth surface highlights the wood’s natural grain, reflecting light to reveal the wood’s beautiful, organic imperfections. The use of French walnut is both aesthetic and pragmatic. Rich in color and texture, walnut is also a relatively lightweight wood, with superb strength to weight ratio, and an ability to be finished to a very high quality. The Dordogne region of France, famed for its walnut production, has trees being planted, farmed and harvested over many centuries. The trees this chair was made from were all over 100 year old farming trees that had reached the end of their working life, and were cared for and harvested within a sustainable farming model. The visual appearance of the wood shows a variety of color and texture that is never achieved within the more stable North American climate.
