Jordan Mozer (b.1958): Iridium Barre Stool, Cast Aluminum and Mohair, a 2018 variation on a 1992 stool created as part of the Jordan Mozer + Associates, Ltd. design for Iridium, a restaurant and jazz club in New York across the street from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. These stools are prototypical. Collection of the artist. Signed Measurements: "32 tall x 14" diameter x 14" wide x 18" deep (82 cm tall x 36 cm diameter seat x 36 cm wide x 46 cm deep)
PROCESS + MATERIALS
The stool was created by hand-carving maple sculptures and casting the forms in recycled aluminum. The castings were hand polished and welded together. The seat is upholstered in wool mohair.
The artist attended dance classes at the pointed direction of his springboard diving coach. These Barre Stool forms recall ballet dancers wearing leg warmers and toe shoes and their flexible arching backs. These stools were created for Mozer's design for Iridium Restaurant and Jazz Club, located just across the street from New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The restaurant imagined accompanying Clara in her Nutcracker dream and was infused with imagery from dance and Goethe's suggestion that "architecture is like frozen music".
