the Genus Chair by Philip Estlund

Thursday, December 12, 2013

The Genus Chairs... brought to you by the dreams of my childhood. No but actually, brought to you by Philip Estlund, an Athens-born, now NY and Florida-based sculptor and collage artist. He happened upon the idea for the Genus Chairs while working with paper cutouts from field guides and nature books, laying the scraps on the surfaces of his home as he worked. Laid upon his Eames fiberglass chair (but of course), Estlund realized the now technicolor, dimensional chair was a real bit of magic. The series, created for Grey Area, includes mushrooms, crystals, sealife, and flora.
