Ava Chair by Lazar

seat of the week

ava chair part two

The Ava chair is for talking and tv. It might not strike you as a long term chair but could certainly last a whole movie; something light like a comedy. White in the room would bring the chair to the foreground. Wood surfaces would stabilize the orange and make for softer transitions. Either way, as the star of the show or as background support, the Ava chair holds its own.

This throne of a seat looks like it was unpeeled to reveal singer/songwriter, Ari Lennox. She can’t be bought, regrettably, but two of these chairs in tour backyard amid bamboo, banana trees, palms and philodendron might mimic the getaway that is her voice. Fit for shiraz on Saturday night or chai on Sunday morning, this chair is for conversation, reflection, gratitude.

You often hear about the chair in this journal.
I say ‘chair’ but I speak of every object in the room.
I speak of the table,
I speak of the bed
I speak of books
I speak of you.

When you see or hear about the chair,
allow it to take on the shape of any object you’re ready to start dialogue with.

Above: Iklwa by Mac Collins. “…when used, the throne conjures up notions of authority, empowerment and dominance against oppression.
“Drawing inspiration from his African Cultural heritage, Mac has created a furniture piece which is in tune with the ideas of Afrocentrism and Afrofuturism. Through a composition of powerful, spear-like forms, an encompassing backrest and a vivid, ultramarine hue, the designer has created a visually intense object designed to dominate and overwhelm its surroundings.” As described on maccollins.com

Above: I spotted this arrangement uptown. The cane webbing caught my eye. I drew closer and found that the chair had sustained some injuries over time. Still (with slight adaptations), it functions.

“Designs don’t have to be perfect: results that are not quite optimum or less than perfect are often completely satisfactory for everyday usage. No everyday product is perfect, nor need they be.”
