PROCESS + MATERIALS
The exoskeleton of the chair was hand carved in maple, and then cast in 93% recycled magnesium-aluminum alloy. The frame was then burnished and welded. It is upholstered in 100% wool mohair. The artist's name is cast into the frame.
Originally designed for Nectar Restaurant by Mozer, this variation in the finish and the mohair upholstery was created in 2015 for the artist's residence. Nectar Restaurant was inspired by Pre-Columbian American architecture and art of the southwest, a design commissioned by Steve Wynn for the opening of the Bellagio Resort Hotel in Las Vegas in 1997. The design explored branching twig motif inspired by Pre-Columbian Southwestern architectural framing in which beams are cradled by columns formed by a branching. This motif informs the chair frame and materials of the chair. It also inspired railings, carpet motifs and the plaster interior architecture.
Nectar Restaurant immersed guests in a fantasy of Pre-Columbian southwestern civilization rendered in natural materials.
