What a hoot! There are so many pieces of furniture out there it can be hard to imagine a new idea for a chair. But I’m flipping over these chairs by Peter Harvey. He calls it the tongue-and-cheek chair a celebration of the fluidity of the tongue.
Too deep for me, I think it looks more like someone naked going into a handstand or a group of people showing their rears, synchronized swimming also comes to mind. Sorry Peter, it looks like a row of asses in the air! Which caught my attention. Can you imagine these at a party, a few cocktails later and the guests will be imitating the chairs.
Love the glass reinforced plastic (GRP), especially in these jazzy colors. UV stable and smooth. He is making a limited number of 50 and each piece is signed and numbered – so it is art. As art, one gets to interpret it how they wish. How would you interpret it?
