Zachary A. Paper Collection
It may not be paper, but it definitely has paper in its lineage.
In fact, the new collection from Zachary A. begins as paper, conceptually, at least, if not actually in fact.
The process begins as a sketch—a drawing first made before the paper it’s on is then manipulated, Origami-like, into a form that loosely resembles a chair or stool.
Next, it functions as a mold: a cast made from its inside, in which the folds, crumples, and, yes, the very essence of the drawing are transferred to the furniture’s exterior.
These are fully-functional pieces that support the weight of a human person, yet they look as if they’re made of paper, as if they might blow away in a stiff breeze.
In essence, these stools and chairs transform the flat plane of a paper drawing into a fully realized object, one that solicits contact and exploration, “inviting one to experience a drawing that’s found new life in three-dimensional space.”
