Description

Functional handmade masterpiece – sculpture by aesthetics and bench by function. The inspiration for the sculptural form came from the ever-changing horizon, that sometimes seems flat, sometimes curved – depending on how high above sea level the observer is. The object reflects the designer’s love to play with optical illusions and gravity.

Under the weight pressure, the bench becomes slightly flexible and changes its shape. The curvature creates cushioning when seated, depending on the weight. It straightens and becomes a real experience for the person sitting. Intended for a maximum of 2 people for simultaneous use and can also serve as a table.

Intended for a maximum of 2 people for simultaneous use.

About Jānis Visit Showroom →

I’m working with wood for more than 35 years – making sculptural objects, design pieces, decorative objects and also fully functional pieces of custom made furniture. ​ I used to own a small furniture making workshop employing up to 8 people, but since a few years back we are just but a few colleagues and friends – working together, focusing  on artistic creation of unique design pieces made of wood. ​ I like to play with optical illusions and gravity force. Some people say my custom furniture is more like a sculpture. It is true, though, that in the early years of my work I was indeed making also sculptural objects from wood. ​ I’ve participated in 50 art exhibitions since 1983 out of which 12 were solo exhibitions. I am a member of Latvian Artist’s Union since 1990 and of Designer’s Union of Latvia since 2009. My works are in permanent exhibition in the Latvian National Library and the Museum of Decorative Art and Design of Latvia. ​ I was awarded the “Design Award of the Year” for sculptural furniture piece “Chair in Chair” (Latvian Designers Association, 2008), magazine “Deko” Award of the Year (2007) for “The Beetle” cabinet in unique design category.
