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 graphic into form.
In contrast to the former studies using rigid structure and material, the Hard Candy series approaches graphics through a more soft and tactile way.
This prototype armchair uses a flexible foaming agent and dyes to mimic the movement of flowing pigments.
Because the nature of the materials, every piece will be one of a kind just like a painting.
