This glass chair is not only unique, only 3 pieces were ever produced, it is a work of art that plays with your senses.
A special technique called ‘breaking glass’ was applied on the back rest, it literally means breaking the glass and is done is manually with a special hammer. This delicate method is something only very well trained professionals are able to do and takes years of practice.
In this work it gives the edges an extra dimension, the eye and the mind immediately suspect danger when we come close to the sharp edges of the broken glass. A nice tension field is built up this way and it also show the fragility of the material.
For safety reasons it has been polished and does not cut any more, it is mere esthetic and show off of craftsmanship. This all is enhanced when you are about to sit on it, is it safe!? As said more than just a chair, it’s a work af art that plays with you as you observe and use it.
