Marc Fish, Laminaria Chaise, UK, 2016
Marc Fish’s unique sculptural chaise lounge is hand-carved from American black walnut. This work, made with cold carving techniques, showcases Fish’s incredible mastery of today’s most refined practices in micro stack-lamination. Manipulated into sinuous layered shapes, the wood has been hand-carved, sanded, polished, and finished with oil and wax. Following Fish’s Laminaria Console and Laminaria Library Steps, this piece furthers the artist’s exploration of twisted seaweed forms, as its title, Laminaria, a genus of seaweed, suggests. At once unique sculpture and functional object, the delicate chaise embodies a seemingly organic, unprecedented form while revealing the artist’s hand at work.
As Fish only creates a few select designs per year, his work is in high demand. Custom designs and finishes may be requested.
