2012, Birch veneer plywood, 60"w x 36"h x 24"d
This chair is the result of a mash-up of Le Corbusier’s wellknown LC4 lounge chair with Eliel Saarinen’s peristyle staircase at the Cranbrook Art Museum. When placed on the staircase, the chair profile and seating surface assume the exact position of the LC4 in its most upright position. When placed on any other level surface, the chair profile and seating surface take on the angle
of the LC4 in its most reclined position. This project explores the recovery and re-use of popular consumer design and imagery as related to the history and body of architecture. The materials used in the project are also literally salvaged from a preceding architectural study, also placed at the base of the Saarinen staircase.
