Marc Fish, Bronze One Piece Chair, UK, 2016
Fish constantly 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 Fish’s 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. With the One Piece series, Fish explores the positive and negative space that a single piece of wood can occupy. Evocative of human forms, the works in this series showcase Fish’s incredible mastery of today’s most refined practices in micro stack-lamination, implementing cold carving rather than heat.
The One Piece Chair, part of the One Piece series, 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.
