Hard Candy Armchair

polyurethane foam, wood, 2013, 26"w x 32"h x 16"d

The hard candy chair is the first prototype I made during my residency at the Talking Dolls in Detroit during the summer of 2013. From a graphic design and fine art background, I’m always interested in how to restore the handmade quality while transforming 2D graphics into 3D form. In contrast to former studies using rigid structure and material, the Hard Candy series approaches graphics in a softer and more tactile way. This prototype armchair uses a flexible foaming agent and dyes to mimic the movement of flowing pigments. Because of the nature of the materials, every piece will be one of a kind.
