Spotted at ICFF 2017: What could be more perfectly predestined  for this blog than a Pink Skull Chair! Swoon! What makes this design even more special is that it is the second appearance on The Gig of a Flocked Skull! Manufactured by Polart, the company uses a special technique to electrostatically adhere the flock to its products, resulting in a texture that is soft like velvet to the touch. Appropriately, the collection (which includes other designs) is known as Flockart.

The Calavera Chair is the first piece of a collection inspired by Mexico’s heritage and its most recognized holiday, Dia de los Muertos, the holiday to honor the dead. Calavera, which translates in English as a human skull, is a the ideal name for the chair depicted as a giant skull and decorated with ornate details — such as the crown which serves as the chair’s back support — to represent Dia de los Muertos. Calavera is constructed of polyurethane, steel and a choice of fabric.

The Calavera Chair design is the first collaboration with a furniture company for designer Dirk Vermeire, whose background as an artist is rooted in his Flemish culture. His works have been presented at high profile art shows across the globe, including Art Basel. Vermeire currently resides between Ghent, Belgium, and Marbella, Spain, where his Plexiglas studio is located.

The Flockart collection will be produced in both indoor and outdoor options and will be available in the brand’s 20 signature bold colors and durable materials. The Calavera Chair is priced to retail at $719 for the outdoor version and $599 for interior designs.
