Paynes Grey Chair, 2021
plywood, paynes grey paint, lacquer
Payne’s grey is the colour of shadows. Made from a mix of ultramarine and burnt sienna.
Composed of CNC-cut elements, finished and assembled, small curvatures in the chair’s skeletal frame remark the changing qualities of light. It recalls the perched posture of the orthoptera order (ancient Locusts, summer’s grasshopper).
A temporal form, belonging to interpretation.
