Continuing his exploration of stack laminated hand-cut “veneers”, Fish is pushing his construction method forward with a more organic uidity and with sharp crisp lines that blend into sweeping curves. The Laminaria Chaise is made from eight boards that have been deconstructed and reformed into eight sections that strikingly ow in and out of each other.
A feat of design, sculpting, and engineering, the Laminaria Chaise references the Art Nouveau period, but the inspiration for the work and the movement of the chaise are inspired directly by nature.
Fish’s incredible mastery of today’s most refined practices in micro stack-lamination formed the genesis of the Laminaria Series. Manipulated into winding, layered shapes, each work has been pieced together, hand-carved, sanded, polished, and nished with oil and wax. Stimulated by marine life, this series takes inspiration from twisted seaweed forms, as its title, Laminaria, a genus of seaweed, suggests. The sinuous and delicate forms reveal the artist’s hand at work while embodying a seemingly organic structure.
As Marc Fish works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality and finishes may be accommodated for a bespoke, hand-carved piece.
