Yellow Paper Pulp Sculptural #21.1c Tubes Chair by Zaven

About the Item

The Tubes series was initiated during lockdown in the spring of 2020, when the Italian studio Zaven's married co-founders were stuck at home. "We decided to build a new piece of furniture for our living room, using the material we had at our disposal, mostly paper from old lifestyle magazines. Back in the studio we decided to developed the project and investigate it in various types of objects. The result is a collection of furniture entirely made from recycled and recyclable materials." The chair is made from cardboard, paper pulp, solvent-free glue and paint. It's very sturdy, since the internal structure is made of cardboard tubes. The surface is hard and is painted with the same water-based paint used in the furniture industry. It essentially has the same characteristics as a wooden table, so it's resilient for use in normal conditions. It should not be left outdoors, but if it had some liquid spilled on it, for example, it would be fine. It can be ordered in any custom color for a $400 surcharge.

  • Hand-Carved Sculptural White Oak Dining Chair W/ Plant-Based Finish
    By Cultivation Objects, Nathaniel Wojtalik
    Located in Brooklyn, NY
    Piece and Quiet by Nathaniel Wojtalik is a series that draws upon the literary, musical, and cinematic idea of découpé, or cut-up. The technique of découpé stems from the notion that a text, musical score, or image could be cut up and rearranged to create a new body. Off-cuts and partially completed prototypes float around Wojtalik's studio; some more machined and worked than others, many just raw materials laying in their natural form. Wojtalik practices design by intuition: limited, but simultaneously expanded within the constraints of what is salvaged. Each piece is unique and hand made in the Brooklyn studio, so no two will look exactly alike, but all will look close to as pictured. All materials are locally sourced and finishes are derived from non-toxic plant based...

  • Bronze Sculptural Panama Chair, 21st Century by Mattia Biagi
    By Mattia Biagi
    Located in Culver City, CA
    "Panama Bronze" is an art and design project, the result of the collaboration between the artist Mattia Biagi and Promemoria. The artist has poured hot tar on a real Panama chair, to bring the object closer to the material and to make it melt in the ground. Mattia Biagi has created what he himself called the "polarity of destruction and conservation". "Although the melted tar destroys the object it touches, in this case, the Panama chair - an elegant and finely crafted object - it simultaneously preserves it in its new and very different form". This is how the original silhouette of the Panama chair was turned into its new incarnation. Thanks to its experience in working with bronze, Promemoria has helped Mattia to refine his work of art, transforming the iconic Panama chair, designed by Romeo...
