Spirit House Chair, Design: Daniel Libeskind
The creation of the Spirit House Chair was influenced by its surroundings. In this case, the new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal's exterior and the interlocking, self-supporting structures, which are reminiscent of crystals. The intersection of two of these crystals creates a void at the heart of the building- Spirit House. It is cut from a blank sheet on a CNC Laser Cutter, formed on a brake press, hand TIG welded and polished.
The chair is constructed entirely of 14 gauge stainless steel with a brushed finish and weighs 180 lbs. stands 35.5” tall and is 46.5” wide. Each chair takes 40 hours of labor to complete and only a limited number have an engraved signature from Daniel Libeskind on the top.
