LINE CHAIR

 

Invited by curator Polina Angelova to respond to Frank Gehry’s architecture, Alex Hull was challenged to relinquish some of the strict control over organic curves that characterises his work. The chair is designed spontaneously, with a single, fast swirl of a pen on paper, allowing the inertia of the movement to take over.

 

 

Alex Hull worked with master blacksmith Andrew Langley, who used hot and cold hand-forging techniques to make the solid bronze bar follow the curves of the sketch.
