smoke chair by Maarten Baas, 2002. Made of burnt wood, epoxy resin, leather. Manufactured in the Netherlands by Moooi. Pieces of furniture are literally burned, after which they are preserved in a clear epoxy coating. The beauty and character of burned wood is now captured in a long lasting material, creating the strange sensation of sitting on burnt furniture.
I wanted a leather chair for reading in my studio, but my sister said it didn't come across as "studious intellectual" chair but more as "Scotch drinking, cigar-smoking" chair. Cardiff Leather Armchair #potterybarn
