Slip Chair

Made by hand in Portugal by Uva, the white oak wood frame of Slip Chair appears to be sinking into the ground, rendering it unusable. However a tapered black marble stone slab restores a level, functional surface for sitting. The opposing elements of the light, wood frame and heavy, monolithic volume that rests upon it, exist in an oscillating balance. Rotated on two axes, the implied instability of the slipping form conceals the durability of Slip Chair.
