About The Piece
The Lathe IX came as a later rehearsal on the ‘movement by turning’ ideas of the Lathe collection. Following closely the actions of The Lathe VIII piece, Sebastian Brajkovic was focusing on a new explanation on the search for a reinvention of classical chair shapes. By brutally altering one of the backs of that latter piece of his collection, the Lathe VIII chair, he changed this loveseat in to a ‘Chaise Longue’. Encouraged by the quirky perspectives cubist painters used, unfolding the ‘face’ directly in the ‘silhouette’, a remarkable amalgamation unveils of both practicality and imagination in The Lathe IX.
