Seat Sculpture was commissioned for a new shopping mall in Corpus Christi Texas. The brief was to make an interactive sculpture inspired by mid-century modernist design. I have always been an admirer of the work of the architect Eero Saarinen. I remember seeing his TWA building at JFK airport New York for the first time and being blown away. His womb chair is particularly sculptural. I have always been fascinated by the relationship between sculpture and design and have been inspired by the work of architects and designers. Seat Sculpture is a product of this.
