This is a beautiful chair line was suggested to me by Kelly Harris as something that may be of interest. I am on my way out the door but will be doing some research on the “Smoke Chair” as soon as I get home…. happy chair hunting.
OK…. got home and found this designer to be amazing. He takes established chairs and allows the randomness of fire to change the wood. The final process is fixing the charred wood in resin. Below we see Frank Lloyd Wright’s Barrel Chair, the second chair is a smoking chair, (I couldn’t find the designer on any of his sites only that he sets the chair on fire and extinguishes it then upholstery is added) Rietveld’s Red and Blue Chair, and finally his dining chair. The collection is huge, definitely someone to check out.
