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.
Argentina possibly 1930 Featured is a pair of Art Deco Cigar Smoking, MUSIC listening, library reading club chairs. The chairs have a wood frame with swirl detail. A great feature is the high arm rests. The fabric is a dusty rose velvet worn in enough to delight the senses!
