Marc Fish, Bronze One Piece Chair, UK, 2016
Marc Fish strives to transcend the barriers of art, design, sculpture, and furniture. His sublimely unique works possess a timelessness that could be found seamlessly in the most contemporary of settings to the most traditional. Exploring the Victorian obsession with natural history, these one of a kind pieces are created through an incredible mastery of the most refined practices in micro stack-lamination today. While the curvilinear forms of Fish’s works harken back to Art Nouveau, his process pushes the limits of 21st-century furniture design.
The One Piece Chair is part of the One Piece series, in which Fish explores the positive and negative space that a single piece of wood can occupy. The chair is made from nearly 180 pieces of oak timber, manipulated into shape, hand-carved, and sanded until smooth. Bronze and squid ink dye are used to create the exquisite textures and colors that follow the chair’s curves.
