Contemporary 'Vanishing Twin' Side Chair by Material Lust, 2014

About

Unveiled at voltany 2014 the vanishing twin chair is a rebirth of the pagan chair released in 2014. The vanishing twin chair was a part of an installation that featured a daily cycle of ritual seating arrangements interacting with the gallery booths surrounding. The geometry is god line is driven by a fascination with pagan and alchemical symbolism and ancient geometries. With this series, we have attempted to reinterpret these markings without losing the potency of their primary aesthetic. The goal is to make furniture that is symbolically dense and as a result the collection could be described as functional sculpture. Vanishing twin chair, 2015 painted wood. Measures: 36" H x 17" W x 18" D. Made to order. Lead time 4-6 weeks. Each piece is meticulously handmade by a family of master artisans, the grandfather, father and son, one at a time in Florence, Italy and New York. This piece is currently in stock in Los Angeles and New York City.

About The Maker

Material Lust

Material Lust

View Profile
Dark horse disciples of art and design, Material Lust (Christian Swafford and Lauren Larson) abide by a Solitarian philosophy, wholly independent of trend, trajectory, or corporate system. Though their work draws on myriad influences—the guidance of their artist mothers; the old-world methods of the master artisans with whom they partner; and a will to upend the commercial and conventional—their intent remains sharply focused. Through preservation of time-honored technique and an uncompromising commitment to forward-thinking design, Swafford and Larson honor the dignity in the ominous, the grotesque, and the oft-forgotten; pushing the bounds of what deserves to be seen. In addition to furniture and textile design, the pair bring over ten years of experience to Creative Consulting, Art Direction, Product Design and Interiors, working regularly with clients seeking bold and unorthodox methods of developing their brands, products, or spaces. Our collection is made by generations of master artisans locally in New York and Florence, Italy.
