PROCESS + MATERIALS
Made in Chicago. Wood hand carvings were cast in recycled magnesium-aluminum alloy, hand polished, and then patinated by rubbing the castings with elixirs. Upholstered in wool flannel. Etched signature.
The original Canter’s chair was developed when Jordan Mozer + Associates, Ltd. was asked by Bobby Baldwin to design the second Canter's Restaurant to reposition MGM/Mirage’s TI resort hotel in Las Vegas.
The original Canter’s is a legendary midcentury, 24-hour Hollywood hangout. It is frequented by rock stars, actors and directors, writers and their entourages. This chair is an updated variation of the original chair the artist developed for the Las Vegas project. The upholstery has been reworked.
