The Stubby chair is anchored by an elm wood log, cut and shaped into a smooth, rounded seat.
Around this base, a light metal structure creates a finishing touch, outlining the base and sculpting a back and armrests.
Kinzhalina chose the wood to evoke a sense of natural stability and authenticity, and to unite the material with metal in a fresh way.
“The Stubby chair reinterprets familiar silhouettes and recognisable texture, the beauty of which has disappeared from the observer under a layer of familiar assessments and memories,” said Kinzhalina.
“Just a few new details change the sensation of interacting with the piece and take it far beyond the understanding of how metal and wood can form a single whole without conflicting.”
