The Peacock Chair is made from solid walnut, laminated and carved. An exploration of the notion of the “seat of power”, the chair is comfortable and strong while being soft, supple, and displaying vulnerability through its lace-like fanned back. The chair is related to a series by the artist exploring the punctuation of furniture with orifices that disrupt surfaces. Made by first creating a solid surface through glue-laminations and then meticulously carving and sanding the web of holes, the chair-back reflects various natural patterns and creates a shadow reminiscent of a tree canopy casting its shadow on the ground.
