Ode Chair by Sizar Alexis
Signed and numbered Edition of 12.
The hexagon has more to it than we think, and some of the aspects of this shape are still mysterious. The series is an ode to the aesthetics that I fell in love with within a geometrical sculptural work of art and the interesting perfect form of the historical hexagon. It’s fascinating how hexagons are part of our life but fail to realize this. It all comes down to the element that is present throughout our body, and that is carbon. The use of the form dates back to ancient Mesopotamia ca. 690 BC in the form of hexagonal shaped cuneiform of the Assyrian king Sennacherib’s annals, and is one of the first humans found to utilize hexagonal shapes. The series comes in natural solid pine or burned pine that gives it its character and tactility in the visible wavy woodgrains.
