Seaweed Chair – Gaetano Pesce


While working for Gaetano Pesce at his Soho Studio in New York City, I was guided by Gaetano to construct his design for “The Seaweed Chairs”. 5 chairs were constructed by using an industrial strength fabric cutting machine to shred the textiles into long equal width strips. Then a unique formula of resin directed by Gaetano was mixed with the shredded fabric in a large industrial steel bowl and then applied in sections. With the guidance of Gaetano, each chair was carefully assembled by building up the resin coated fabric, shaping the chair by hand.
