The OdeChair

In the previous post about Color Pulse 2010 part of what Doty Horn sees as a trend from now to 2010 is "authenticity." Authenticity that sheds new light on known materials and an extension of that is use of materials that exposes "the parts" as they become" the sum.

After I wrote that I remembered an email from Jolyon Yates about OdeChairs- contemporary organic chairs hand made in Northumberland.

You can see the parts of wood that make up the chair, it's authentic, and the parts are changed into a new sum. No longer a tree, or pieces of a tree, the OdeChair is a whole new way of seeing the tree...and it's right brained.
