Let’s all do the Can-Can, ’cause we can- if we want to. This collection is made for Margareta.
My new object “Bestia BLanca” (White Beast) photographed on my patio at dusk (December 10th 2017) in West Vancouver, Canada.
Yet another Gap-Chair where the seat part is not directly connected to the seat back, this time constructed with wood rests from a renovation container and with plexi-glass which was also found in a bin. I designed this version with an extreme long seat back giving the bottom part a “fold” with a 90 degree angle. I wanted to make a new version of my trademark ‘Gap-Chair’ giving it a tough, blunt, constructivist look.
Dimensions: seat height: 48cm, seat width: 42.2cm, seat depth: 43.5cm
If you should copy these chairs please give me (Dirk Marwig) CREDIT for the DESIGN. Only fair!
Dirk Marwig’s “Gap-Chair” No.5 (Reclaimed scaffolding wood with white oil wash and wood glue, 92cm high, 40cm wide, 74.5cm deep; seat height: 46.5cm, seat depth: 44cm, Dirk Marwig 2017)
This photo shows the Gap-Chair with the restored drawing “Zomb” from 1995 and a still unfinished wall object made from the same stolen/reclaimed wood.
Note: Throughout ‘chair design history’ no wooden chairs where the seatback is Not directly attached to the seat have been designed or produced. The only ones that exist are my 5 “Gap Chairs”.
*I took old scaffolding wood from a construction site next to my house and converted it into my 5th “Gap-Chair”. Arrest me!
