Concept

Voids and spaces move in perfect formal harmony. Shifting, flowing lines give the chair a profile which seems evanescent rather than solid, absorbing and diffusing a faint, refined glow. Size, on Moon, is an illusion. From the side, the curves of the seat merge with the cylindrical form of the base to bring to mind a flower in bloom, a concession to the organic in this rigorously geometric order. From the front, the glow from the seat as the light appears and disappears is enchantingly magical. What makes the form so original is the reverberations that emanate from the different planes. It is a new form of three-dimensionality which enhances the stylish lines and the moon-like quality of the piece which originates in the interaction of the solid with the evanescent.
