Description:

The annual Las Vegas NEWH Art of Design Chair Competition invites teams of two—an architect and a fabricator—to take a standard IKEA chair and transform it. Arktura’s winning interpretation for 2012 was to disassemble the original chair and use CNC routing to carve and gouge its surface, giving the effect of deterioration and fragility. Inspired by the negative space that remained, we completed the piece with a swarm of sheet metal fragments that appear to have emerged and taken flight from the chair itself.
