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.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
