About this artwork

Made from bent plywood, the Venus Chair looks, on first glance, as if it is the inner core of the Mars Chair. Further exploration, however, reveals that while its geometries were influenced by the Mars Chair, instead of mimicking the earlier design’s exact nature, its contoured form is a more streamlined rendition made from a simple, graceful assembly that is surprisingly lightweight.
