PROCESS + MATERIALS
The forms were hand carved using mixed media, then molded and then cast in integrally colored, non-combustible, glass and Kevlar reinforced chocolate resin. The finished surface is hand rubbed with a light abrasive.
These chairs were created in Chicago in 2004 when Jordan Mozer and Associates, Limited converted the ruins of an old foundry into a boutique hotel, restaurant and night club called East in Hamburg, Germany.
Ergonomically, these chairs accommodate two postures; they support upright dining and, by turning 90 degrees, after-dinner lounge seating.
As the East Hotel was the the adaptive reuse of a foundry, the artist produced components, including these chairs, that were informed by the materials, methods and forms of castings.
