The classic Thonet Chair design gets a super artsy, post-modern treatment with Melting Thonet, from European design firm OrtaMiklos (which includes partners Leo Orta and Victor Miklos Andersen).
Generally informed by natural habitats and processes, the creative duo’s experimental approach activates their design works from the existing norms. Here, Michael Thonet’s innovative chair frame — created by bending wood with hot steam and forming it into curved, graceful shapes — is fabricated from a powder-coated steel, to create a frame that exaggerates the original’s bends and twists into an entirely different domain.
Artist Sarah Knouse created this fantastically surreal mixed media Flamingo Sculpture out of plastic, resin and wood. I think it looks amazing and tells such a story just by the way the materials create a dripping, swamp-like effect. You can see more original and very fun sculptures by Sarah at her website, located at this This Link.
