The American designer, Wendell Castle presents a solo exhibition of unique work in the Barry Friedman gallery in New York. The exhibition features 12 unique stack-laminated wood chairs. The chairs were designed in organic, curvilinear forms. Ghost Rider, a large attenuated rocking chair, illustrates Castle’s ability to intertwine complex technique with bold and graceful lyricism; with the pod-like seat suspended quietly between swooping legs, it is calm in a storm of motion. There is also a series in polished concrete chair. The concrete chair has a fluidity of line that belies its material while re-enforcing that his dedication to design never compromises the inherent function of the piece.
