“Siesta Butte” is a daybed that evokes the feelings of lounging in the red rocks of the Garden of the Gods. Pulling design inspiration from the American southwest as well as radical Italian design, “Siesta Butte” is a souvenir or a dimensional post-card to gift to a friend for their own vicarious travels.
“… And when the travelers came upon the divine topography they knew their pilgrimage was realized and so their songs grew silent. Once a resting place for drifter giants, a monolith remains and conjures questions of purpose and god’s whereabouts. The turtle pilgrims* believe that there is no doubt of the spirit before them and that indelibility inherently implies importance. At the end of their journey but far from the end of the world, the travelers now rest in the gaze of the sun with the fleshy ridges of red earth acting as a personal daybed. ‘Maybe it is just daybeds all the way down,’ speculates Rachel, the youngest of the turtle pilgrims.”
