Fredrikson Stallard’s Species II armchair is currently exhibited with David Gill Gallery at Masterpiece, London.
Species II is a seminal art piece and was initially launched as part the Fredrikson Stallard ‘Momentum’ exhibition during LDF 2015. Since then, the Species II armchair has been acquired for permanent collection by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
“Species” is a study in evolution by Fredrikson Stallard through the media of furniture design, created with a brute force that is at odds with ideas of comfort or human contact yet so inviting by the nature of its materials. The pieces are amorphous structures, elements of sculpted mass, chaotic energy, finished in shades of red – as for Fredrikson Stallard these are the colours of life and death.
Something along the lines of – “It couldn’t happen here, but then it did”.
