← This is not a chair.
Ceci n’est pas une chaise.

706 Chair, 2017
25" x 19.75" x 20.25"
Natural rubber, Corian
“For VOLTA NY 2017, WINTERCHECK FACTORY presented an entirely new collection of furniture and sculptural pieces entitled RECEPTION, which included the 706 Chair.
The foundation of this collection is SVR-3L, a natural rubber commodity imported from Vietnam in compressed bales. SVR-3L is extremely dense, resists manipulation by any commonplace tools and must be cut using a high pressure water jet cutter. This application of brute force to an unyielding natural material echoes the earth works of Michael Heizer. Presented in both whole and sliced volumes, the rubber prompts a visceral reaction that borders on revulsion. Wire glass and Corian provide a subtle foundation to both contain and display this material.”
