Reinventing furniture design and the chair design itself, this exhibition is a singular challenge and one that begs the question: Why? For generations the function of a chair has remained the same: an object specifically made for seating a person. The history of the chair echoes human evolution and over the millennia, this item has symbolized every facet of the zeitgeist, from Napoleonic thrones to the humble plastic school chairs produced in mid-century America.

CERAMIC CHAIR BY REINALDO SANGUINO

The Future Perfect Art Gallery’s THE CHAIR offers plenty of diversity of handmade art: open or closed back, finials, leather, metal or wood. Four legs, two, or one. Is it glass, as posed by John Hogan, or ceramic, as posed by Reinaldo Sanguino? Where does technology come into the equation or does the handmade reign?

“We asked each artist to create a single one-of-a-kind chair that embodies who they are as an artist and maker. The results are overwhelming and extremely personal.”

The Future Perfect decided to answer some of these questions by issuing artists, industrial designers, ceramicists, sculptors, and interior designers with a brief to create a single chair of their own imagination. The final selected works, which range from fully functional examples to pieces of pure art and design of the sculpture, will be one-of-a-kind pieces for sale exclusively through The Future Perfect.
