Walnut Monroe Chair by Alexander White
The gorgeous walnut Monroe Chair by Alexander White is an exploration of form and function through repetition. With modern technologies such as CNC machinery, we are able to replicate endless identical items, which is impossible by hand. This chair is made of 83 matching components which swivel around a central axis in order to create a complexly curved and comfortable armchair. The challenge was to create one flat shape that contains the four main elements of an armchair as the back leg gradually morphs into the backrest and the armrest into the front leg. Creating a distinct aesthetic entirely defined by the manufacturing process and the simplicity of the original concept. Named Monroe after its striking resemblance to Marilyn Monroe’s white pleated dress as she steps over the subway grate in NYC. Signed by Maker
