TALL MAN'S CHAIR<< previous | next >>

The mosaiced chair is part of the mosaiced furniture collection that finds its inspiration in the element 'water'.

 

The original sitting and back of this man's chair originated in the 19th century have been replaced with transparent plexiglass and coloured tiles, which are immersed in resin. The antique marquetry and carved ornamental motifes of the chair are particularly beautiful and unify different classical styles, like the Baroque, the Rococo and the Gothic in order to become a Neoclassical style which is meant to reflect grace and power. The touch of lightness that will always keep the Neoclassicism fresh is amplified and renewed by the colourful transparencies which were inspired by mosaiced floors constructed during the Romanesque period which nowadays are often located under water as the water level rised during the centuries.

 

The transparency permits a new way of using antique chairs, which makes them contemporary and even more unique.

 

Used materials: original restored neoclassical chair from the 19th century, handcrafted walnut wood, resin, coloured plexiglass
