I found an Eames molded fiberglass chair floating around in the flood waters after Hurricane Katrina. . . it was just the seat, no legs. For years i worked in a style that rivets discs to fiberglass forms and i felt this was a perfect opportunity to continue! All the discs are punched from tins and cans found on the streets of New Orleans in my daily neighborhood walks. The legs and arms of chair are salvaged from bed frames made of angle iron.
Found “tins” cut into 2.25″ discs. Discs are riveted to fiberglass form. Angle iron chair frame is fabricated from bed frames. Approximately 200 discs. All materials are found in New Orleans. All of these pieces are one-of-a-kind, yet similar forms and materials can be re-created upon request.
Materials: Found metal, Steel bed frame
Dimensions: 22” x 30” x 24”
