DUNE CHAIR

designer Cyryl Zakrzewski

The unique shape of the dune chair emerged from the impressions of desert landscapes. I wanted to capture the constant but imperceptible motion of sand, an occurrence that is a beautiful analogy to the phenomenon of time (the shape of hourglass is referenced in the overall design). The prototype was originally sculpted in a rough block of plywood to achieve optimal comfort and a graceful profile, hence the dune chair blurs the line between a sculpture, and a piece of furniture – as both, it combines high level of craftsmanship with artistic freedom and imagination.

Cyryl Zakrzewski
"The art for me is to contain opposites in form so that the boundaries between them become blurred. Nature and culture, light and darkness are in fact one." Born in 1986, an artist for whom every form is a work of art, although the closer to nature the better. Graduated from the Faculty of Sculpture and Spatial Activities at the UAP in Poznań in 2011 with an honours degree - Maria Dokowicz Competition. Participant of numerous exhibitions at home and abroad (Japan, Italy, Slovenia, Austria). Author of permanent installations in public space in Poznań (UAM Botanical Garden and on the Strzeszyński lake), Japan (Tokyo - Fukudenkai) and Slovenia (Ptuj). He treats design as an aesthetic and functional form, but not necessarily devoid of a hidden reflection on the surrounding world.
