The Bronze Age lounge chair by Tjep is a hand-crafted signature piece with a purely sculptural, aesthetic that is visually light but physically strong.
The design comes from the same design roots as the much-acclaimed Recession Chair project. The bronze aspect of the collection infers stability, strength, durability, sustainability (it can be remelted and reused and is never discarded). The furniture shapes are classic interpretations, yet they have undergone a transformation. The aim of the collection is to instill connotations of human-caused disasters, putting these pieces at the centre of contemporary social issues.
Bronze Age lounge chair will be on display as part of renowned trend forecaster, Lidewij Edelkoort’s personal collection of art and design at Kazerne, from June 20 to September 28, 2015
