Parametric Morphogen King Throne

$16,970per item

About

Limited edition parametric throne made of solid teak wood. Unlike most parametric furniture (which are machine-made), this piece is entire made by hand. Each chair is unique and has a more rustic, organic finish vs. machine-made pieces. This piece is white-washed to achieve an airy aesthetic that fits in all spaces. This parametric throne is part of designer and architect John Brevard's Morphogen series. Derived from the Greek word morphê (meaning "beginning of the shape"), the Morphogen collection features composed organic shapes that abstract, pulled, and stretched into fluid forms. These web-like diffusions are reminiscent of morphogenesis, the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape. These pieces can be made to order to fit your specifications. About the materials: Teakwood has long been prized for its durability and versatility. Long used for furniture and decoration by elites in its native Southeast Asia, teakwood then made its way to Europe by way of Dutch merchants. In the west, it’s often used for shipbuilding, due to its hardness and ability to withstand humidity and ward off dry rot. Unlike more common woods such as pine and oak, teak retains its natural oils and rubber even after being felled and processed. Because of this, teak has greater naturally weather-resistant properties than almost all other wood. The oils and rubber effectively weatherproof the wood, making teak an ideal choice for outdoor furniture. The wood is also naturally protected from dry rot and from fungi and parasites that can destroy other woods. Given the long growth period of teak (typically 80 years until maturation), Brevard uses sustainably cultivated teak without irrigation or fertilizers for this collection in order to protect earth’s natural habitat. All pieces are made with the highest quality (Grade A) teak from the heart of the tree to ensure maximum durability and versatility. About John Brevard: John Brevard is a luxury lifestyle brand founded by American architect and designer John Brevard in 2007. The design ethos of John Brevard is the merging of past, present, and future in an ethereal way, through materials, textures, and fractal patterns that exist at all scales in the universe. Inspired by the principles of natural order, each creation is symbolic of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. The brand currently features fine jewelry, furniture, sculpture, and art. Creative Director Brevard is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). In addition, Brevard is currently the architect, Creative Director, and co-developer for Six Senses Ossura Valley, a sustainable resort slated to open in Iceland in 2022.
