Abstract Armchair: Trippy TRON Film-Inspired Art Furniture
Cinema fans awaiting the new TRON with great anticipation may enjoy doing so in this objected designed around the surreal landscapes for which the classic movie is well known. Whether it will be a comfortable wait is another question entirely.
Dror Benshetrit is the mastermind behind a series of limited-edition chairs inspired by this feature film. This “off-the-grid” object “forms a jagged and angular landscape” creating “a chair that is comprised of intersecting layers and textures of ‘digital’ rock” that in turn are “constructed of composite material consisting of impregnated fiberglass with polyester resin processed with manual layering.”
Each model is finished in a slightly different fashion, themed around splatters of industrial-colored pains, but all versions use recycled materials at their core and cozy or not, who could resist at least sitting down in one to try it out? Bizarre, weird and unique come to mind, but perhaps the work is best summed up simply as “art” (versus, say, furniture).
